Joachim Manuel Riederer – Dancer Portraits


92 pages / 4c (Grayscale)
Book cover made from 2mm gray board with partial dust jacket

Ballet is poetry in motion: beauty, gracefulness, discipline, ambition and sacrifice. What impresses as the perfect choreography on stage, is always the result of training with iron determination, self-doubts and years of hard physical work. Riederers photos don’t portray the obvious, they try to cast a glance behind the perfect shiny facade, behind the spotlights. His photos of seldom intensity and honesty tell more about the dancers than all of their roles ever will.
