Erol Ozan said that “Dancing is creating a sculpture that is visible only for a moment.” This gallery of photographs by Russian photographer Alexander Yakovlev captures the beauty of professional dancers, making it visible for just a little longer.
Photographer Annie Leibovitz said that “Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy – your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.” And in fact, the photography of dancing is an art form as well.
Each of these fantastic photographs deserves observing, thinking, absorbing. Below each photograph we added a quote, enriching the experience. You’re invited to read the quote before you click next each time for the next photo. We couldn’t just place all photos on the same page because the page would have been too heavy to load. And also because each dancing photograph deserves it’s moment, like a separate wall in museum.
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
