Editorial Reviews

Review

“… a splendid, large coffee-table book with over 200 photographs that chronicle intimate moments backstage at the Royal Opera House... The dancers – from corps members to principals – are at ease in his presence and trust him, thus allowing him to capture intimate moments that most official photographers miss… With such sharp and vital photos, the reader gets a real taste of what it is like to be a dancer.” – Dance Magazine (US)

"Uspenski’s volume shows the company in moments of unguarded intimacy that only a fellow dancer could capture." - Daily Telegraph

"This stunning collection of pictures, highly stylised and charmingly informal, is a must for any ballet fan." - Daily Mail

"Fascinating…the pictures have a rare intimacy…an intriguing glimpse of what it’s really like to be a ballerina." - The Lady

"A treat... Dancers is about exceptional ballet photography and for that alone it is rare, valuable and worth collecting." - Ballet News

About the Author

Andrej Uspenski was born in St Petersburg and trained at the Vaganova Ballet Academy and subsequently in Dresden and Berlin. He has been a member of The Royal Ballet for ten years. Andrej grew up with photography, spending much time in his father’s dark room. Surrounded by the Royal Ballet’s supremely talented dancers on a daily basis and drawn to capture their artistry both on and off stage, he discovered his own passion for photography. His photographs can be seen in Royal Opera House programmes as well as national magazines and newspapers.

The photographs are wonderful and this book is fantastic value. However, in my copy there were a number of duplicate photographs. I tweeted the publisher, Oberon Books in London. They were wonderful and mailed me a replacement copy at no cost. Fantastic service.

Format: Hardcover
This book fascinate with his unique look behind the scenes of the great ROH - made of an insider! It shows unexpected perspectives of the dancers: not just like people who dance on stage but also behind the scenes with their emotional looks, moves and gestures. The pictures are so precisely shot that you feel the emotional situation on every page at once. The expressiveness of the pictures results doubtless of the photographer who's a ballet dancer as well. That's a big plus of this book!
