Alex Krivtsov. Territory of Ballet

Alex Krivtsov is the Main Winner of Anna Pavlova Ballet Photo Contest 2017 and we are proud to present his special artistic project TERRITORY OF BALLET.

The idea of this project is to show dancers in the environment of the city and demonstrate the beauty of their self expression on different architectonic backgrounds.

Alex doesn’t use any computer editing and the photos that we see are the results of his highly professional work with the light, the shades and his camera.

TERRITORY OF BALLET was born more than ten years ago. Most of the photos are made in Saint Petersburg, but the photographer hopes to continue the project in other important “ballet” cities of the world.

The protagonists of TERRITORY OF BALLET are some outstanding ballerinas of Mariinsky, Eifman Ballet, WIENER STAATSBALLETT and other great companies.

It’s amazing  how the dialogue between the photographer  and his models  results in such a perfect syntony and harmony of every image….

Alex Krivtsov on his artistic project:

“God gave me this opportunity to show the life itself, the life in which we struggle our fears, doubts and low spirits and prove our own power to ourselves. The city with its streets helps us to feel the dynamics, the modern rhythm  and symbolises our interaction with the outer world and its diversity. “Common” miracles happen here. The real  beauty lives here, and the inspiration and fantasies appear.The feelings and sensations are quite fleeting but leave a joyful trace in the soul. The light captures small yet powerful dancing figures out of the commonness and leads us across the Territory of Ballet…..”
