Matthew Brookes: Les Danseurs

Introduction by Marie-Agnès Gillot

Featured image is reproduced from <i>Matthew Brookes: Les Danseurs</i>.

The beauty of the male body in stunning black-and-white photographs of male ballet dancers

For his first book, photographer Matthew Brookes has turned his lens upon the professional male ballet dancers of Paris. Over the course of a year, he took these dancers out of their regular environment of rehearsals and performances and photographed them in a raw space in which they were allowed to explore the physicality of dance in its purest form. This series of portraits depicts the dancers' responses upon being asked to interpret birds falling from the sky. The introduction is by Parisian prima ballerina Marie-Agnès Gillot, who has worked with these dancers over the years and watched them grow and develop. Brookes was born in England, grew up in South Africa, and is presently based between Paris and New York.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

WWD

Miles Socha

Yet Brookes...is inspired by how these unassuming young men summon wonder and awe as they twist and leap into all manner of improvised shapes and controtions, most of them deliberately unclassical.

WWD

Miles Socha

Toes point toward the heavens in one image, torso crumples over a bent knee in another, the dancers are pictured with a plain canvas backdrop wearing black tights or shorts — leaving nothing to distract from their feats.

Suzy Menkes

British photographer Matthew Brookes - whose powerful study of male dancers, Les Danseurs, is published in the autumn - brought these women and their different characters to life in his images.
