John Paynter Gallery, Newcastle, 2008

The ballet evokes images of beauty, weightlessness and grace. However, to achieve a flawless performance takes years of gruelling exercise, training and often injury, rivalling the preparation of elite sportspeople. This series investigates the arduous work of dancers in the studio, rather than the more familiar, polished production seen by the public.
