As a photographer and visual artist, Pierre-Elie de Pibrac transcribes into surprising and subjective images the energy emitted by the dancing ballerinas. With much pictorial inspiration and without any touching up, he transformed an old lens from the sixties to fit his camera. These colour photos reveal his feelings by visually reproducing the emotions aroused by the performances on stage. A highly personal and abstract approach to ballet dancing.
