One day, probably thinking that this was not funny anymore, God gave us Roberto Bolle!!! And we, mere mortals, came to know a ballet master, a fashion icon, a perfect figure, and a fairy tale story to go with it!
Bruce Webber captured all these (and a few other traits!) of this modern demi-god, in all its speldour and glory! The book is marvelous, but to fully understand WHO Bolle is, see him dance... and then bow, bend, and pick up the jaw that you just dropped!
To appreciate this collaboration between Bolle and Weber, return to the title: An Athlete in Tights. A fine book for those who appreciate the athleticism of the art of ballet. Grady Harp, December 10
I find him the Ansel Adams of the human form. While he does work in color, I find his black & white work excellent. In black & white he is able to communicate a depth not present in his color work. He communicates with the subject and thus, communicates about the subject. Amazing.
The primary subject in this book is Roberto Bolles. You are introduced by way of some images of athletes. These try to prepare you for Roberto. However, in my book (pun intended), Roberto, through his years of work, has crafted an amazing dancer's body. Looking upon this dancer's body you feel as if you are looking upon an angel communicating with heaven - it's other worldly. Amazing
I can hardly wait for the DVD. <jk> ;-)~
