Alessandra Ferri- prima ballerina assoluta, who danced first for The Royal Ballet, then for American Ballet Theatre, and finally for La Scala Theatre Ballet, in one of my favorite photographs of dance and movement ever… is this not the epitome of divine?
This photograph has a wonderfully strange type of movement. A lot of images of dancers seem still and posed, and they lack any movement at all. but in this image, I can see her movement come to life. in this, I see it in reverse.
