"Alexey BRODOVITCH's photo volume 'Ballet', published in 1945 is one of the most legendary photobook masterpieces. While already established as a leading influential art director and graphic designer, Alexey BRODOVITCH turned his photographic talents towards rehearsals and performances of ballet companies visiting New York stages. Shot in 35mm and disregarding traditional conventions of 'good' technique, BRODVITCH pushed the boundaries of description to create a panorama of images that perfectly captures the motion and spirit of dance.
