Series: In Bloom By Andri
Each scan represents different sexual stages in our lives, I thought it would be fun to represent this through the two most feminine things I know.
In order; innocence, lust and elegance.
nate walton @ zmftw here’s the thing - there are obviously some people out there with great taste and the time and desire to put wonderful stuff out there, and I’d love it if those people would use their power for good rather than evil - because going to the dark side of linking back to yourself and making your own undoubtedly delightful curatorial efforts the “source” are signs of stupidity. Rise above it! tell us where you found it! let the artist know who loves their work! Let the viewer go and explore the rest of that artists work!
Philippe Halsman Looks at Dalí, 1954
“This is the secret,” says photographer Henry Leutwyler. “To completely blend in, to become invisible.” Leutwyler spent last winter as the most observant ghost in New York City Ballet’s rehearsal studios, capturing the uncommonly raw backstage images that now compose Ballet, which is both a book (out in December from Steidl) and an exhibit (on view at Foley Gallery November 28 through January 6). The shots here exemplify the peek-behind-the-curtain feel of Leutwyler’s photos, from an open crate of tutus (“like pizzas in a restaurant”) to a ballerina’s feet after a day of matinée and evening performances (“when the feet are demolished”). “If I had to title the picture, I would call it Reality and Dreams,” says Leutwyler. “The foot en pointe is what every little girl dreams of. The other is the hard, hard work, and the reality.”
