Strength, poise and elegance: Explosive dance portraits

Witness the power of Alexander Yakovlev’s stunning photography.

July 22, 2015

We must admit that up until recently, dance wasn't an art form that we gave an awful lot of thought to. But then again, we had never seen it portrayed like how it is in Alexander Yakovlev's beautiful images.

The talented photographer, who amazingly is also a graduate from the faculty of law at the Russian State University, uses dynamic effects such as exploding flour to capture the motion of his stunning subjects.

The end result is a series of photographs that show the sheer power and elegance that these professional dancers possess.  

If this is what real dance is like, we're going to be paying a whole lot more attention to it from now on.
