I think it is the only way I will get to see Altynai Asylmuratova this time - in 2 dimensional form. She did not perform Manon last thursday as she was scheduled to.

I have just visited the Gallery. I spent a delightful evening perusing the photographs of Russian ballet dancers and teachers, offered as part of a promotion of "The Fund for the Museum of Russian Ballet Photography". This Fund comprises a collection of Russian photography from the first ever photographs. Not all of that is on show at this Gallery in Shepherd Market, but there are some very interesting photographs and I bought a photograph of the "Shadows of Mariinsky". Basically it is the Mariinsky corps de ballet dancing as the "Shades" in La Bayadere. It was photographed during the performance without a flash and so is extremely atmospheric. <P>There were photographs of the greats - Ruzimatov, Asylmuratova, Zelensky, Nioradze, Makhalina, Zakharova, Vishneva, Lopatkina and archival reproductions of Baryshnikov and Nureyev. However, I found the pictures of the "Cygnets" ie the Vaganova Academy students in class, and of the corps de balklet much more interesting. The photographs of the greats are not particularly good representations of who they are on stage nor do they offer a view not usually seen. They could be categorised somewhere in between - the, "is that X, oh I didn't recognise her?" category. The pictures of the students are superb - there is a wonderful photograph of Asylmuratova teaching Vaganova students.<P>This is an exhibition well worth seeing. Until 1 July but the photographs will still be accessible even when the next exhibition starts. Ludmilla, who runs the Gallery, is charming and will give you a full history of the performance, artist and photographer. I guarantee that there will be at least one photograph that you feel HAS to be bought.

III-rd International Ballet Photography Exhibition

From Nijinsky to La Ribot - A journey through collection from 1880 to 2002

June 11th - September 20th 2002

A selection of amazing photographs (from the collection of e-Onegin.com) showing ballet, dance and conceptual performance. From early photographs of Petipa in the 1880's, this unique collection of photographs, many of which have never been shown before, takes the viewer through the history of the art of ballet photography to the cutting edge images of contemporary performance.

The annual exhibition of ballet photography first opened at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in June 2000 where more than 50,000 visitors were impressed by a collection of the best images of the Mariinsky Ballet.

A developing tradition, the International Ballet Photography Exhibition has already become a must on the calendars of photography connoisseurs and ballet enthusiasts. This year's collection of 500 outstanding images from around the world shows the development of the genre of dance photography focussing on its position as probably the most challenging of all forms of photography. The photographs in this collection reflect upon the aesthetics of the human body in its relationships with movement and technical challenges.

Luke & A Gallery
4, Pollen Street
Mayfair
London W1S 1ND
nearest tube Oxford Circus
Open Mon-Sat 11am-8pm

Stuart adds: Do go if you are in London and get the chance. Remember that it is a private gallery so don't expect a large exhibition, but the gallery space itself has been lovingly converted and the Managers are genuine enthusiasts and it shows in their choices.
