— What Lies Beneath

What Lies Beneath is a photographic exhibition by Rick Guest, through which he reveals the reality of life as a ballerina. His images focus on the dancers’ tough training regimes and the impact that they have on their bodies.All photos are printed life-size for maximum effect, an this exhibition is available to visit at the Hospital Club Gallery in Covent Garden until 31st January 2016.

 

“I wanted to make a series of portraits of the dancers themselves, as opposed to dancers dancing, to show the character that underpins their performance, to see the determination and sacrifice that it takes to succeed at such a high level.” Rick Guest.

 

Rick Guest has published a book of his dancer portraits, titled What Lies Beneath, which is available from www.rg-books.com.
