"Now Is All There Is - Bodies in Motion", an exhibition of 34 stylised photographs of Royal Ballet dancers is taking place at The Hospital Club, Covent Garden in London for just three days, January 25-27, 2013.
Taken by photographer Rick Guest and with styling by Olivia Pomp, the black and white images celebrate the physicality of dance. The pictures were taken over the last two years and illustrate key disciplines of ballet technique - balance and poise - but with a strong playful edge.
The title of the exhibition comes from a quote by choreographer George Balanchine calling for his dancers to be "in the moment", to never hold back and to give everything, "What are you waiting for? What are you saving yourself for? Now is all there is!"
The Royal Ballet dancers photographed for this project include Lauren Cuthbertson, Melissa Hamilton, Marianela Nunez, Nehemiah Kish, Steven McRae, Thiago Soares, Johannes Stepanek, Eric Underwood, Edward Watson and Zenaida Yanowsky.
