We all have seen dancers performing on stage or on screen. They're mostly seen dancing in the studio with lights and generally covered with lots of makeup. For a photographer, it may get quite exhausting and expensive to shoot such pictures, repeatedly.
David Perkins, a photographer who is capturing pictures of dancers since last ten years. He started creating portrait series a couple of years back. Now, to bring that joy back, he tried to capture the dancers' moves in a behind the stage and to tell the world,"What they actually are in their real life?"
He said," I tried to think of a type of project I could do. What had been done before? Everything had been done before. But then I realized, that was a lie. Dancers are almost always seen performing. They are seen on stage, or on the screen, or even out around New York City among the many landmarks. What you never see are dancers at home, just being themselves. So that is what I began to focus on."
