Danseur Ignoble: Amazing Ballet Pictures by Marge Ely
I think I mentioned that we went to a pre-Burn party last weekend, and I may have mentioned that photographer and fellow Burner Marge Ely took some pictures of us (and others who volunteered) while we were there.
Marge sent us the pictures today. Two of them are delightful; one is really quite stunning (seriously, I’m like, “Wait, that’s me?!”).
So, without further ado, here they are:
Edit: I knew Denis was taller than I am, but not, “I’m on demi-pointe and he’s still taller!” taller.
So, there you have it. Amazing, beautiful pictures by an amazing, beautiful photographer. She’s hoping to mount a show of these, and I really hope she does, because I’d love to see the whole collection together in a gallery!
When I get a chance, I’ll post a link to Marge Ely’s facebook gallery from the party.
No class today because of packing, but I’ll be doing class tomorrow (Brian is teaching! YAAAAAY!).

Very cool photos. The style is unique and necessary for portraits.
Thanks! I was really intrigued when I saw Marge’s setup, and very impressed with her results. I actually quite like the fact that you can see the world behind the backdrop in these un-edited pix. It’ll be interesting to see what else she might do with them as well.
