Fredrik Gille from Stockholm is Anna Pavlova Ballet Photo Contest 2017 Movement and Passion Category Winner.
Today we are proud to present some of his works that took part in the Contest and others that have been made lately in collaboration with beautiful and talented dancers of different companies.
It is always interesting to discover how life brings our participants to dance photography. Everyone of them has his own special story. Some are former dancers, others always dreamed of dancing….And Fredrik approached dance through participating in music and dance projects all around the world as a percussionist. His life of a travelling musicians gives him a wonderful opportunity to meet new talented people and immerse into various cultures. Working a lot with dance as a musician, he started taking photos of dancers to express his fascination by this form of art and its aesthetics. The result is amazing – mesmerizing and passionate portraits of dancers, Fredric’s hymn to the perfection of their trained bodies and their strong spirits.
