Ballet has emerged over the years from a classic form of art to an evolving dance set. Apart from modern works, classical works can also be appealing by just twisting minor things. Works like Cinderella, The Nutcracker or Swan Lake can have a dramatic swift by changing the costumes or the scenery.

Alexander Yakovlev has a degree in law from the Russian State University. However, photography caught his attention and from then one he is fiully dedicated on it. In the series Ballet Time he tried to depict ballet dancers in a superficial way.

Personally, I love to watch classic art in the original way, but art is not static. Yakovlev gave to the audience a different perspective. And did it wonderfully. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
