Baryshnikov

The worldwide famous genius dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov is not closed in his job. The photography is one of his favourite hobbies, that he had turned to 25 years ago. Inspired by ballet photos of Alexei Brodovitch, by the art of Irving Penn, Ilse Bing, Paul Himmel, Baryshnikov found out, how the fuzzy, blurred picture brings the audience closer to the sense of motion. Trying to create a visual metaphor of the motion?s birth with the help of the contrast of fuzzy and sharp faces, Baryshnikov, as the professional, feels the pulse of the dance and bears unforgettable, aerial and eluding image.

The photo series, that are presented at the exhibition «Merce My Way» is the attempt of Baryshnikov to turn into photo images the poetry of the one of the greatest modern choreographers — Merce Canningam, who became famous throw refutation of the basic rules of the choreography and by his so called casual method («scenery of the dance» is sometimes specified with the help of the dice). The choreograph learns the limits of the human body facilities throw unnatural curving, using the cold angular movements, for example, hand flexion in the antyrythm with the legs flexion.
