Ballet Dancer

As if looking to the sky, this male ballet dancer's striking pose helps convey to the viewer a true idea of the sensuality that exists in the world of artistic dance. The subject's slightly clad attire exposes much of his physique, which helps to transcend the boundaries of the still photograph into something more erotic in nature. The effective use of back lighting behind the subject's left shoulder, along with the direct light used on the right pelvic area, helps add to the depth that the picture conveys, and demonstrates the photographer's unique ability as an artist as well. This image is part of the Watching from the Wings: Warhol and Dance exhibition at the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburg, PA.
