These images were taken during multiple world tours as the lead photographer of the Moscow
Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker. Being able to photograph the show many times allowed me to
experiment with different angles and locations throughout each venue.
The extraordinary sets and incredible skill of the dancers combined to create a wonderland that
I feel very fortunate to have experienced.
I’ve chosen canvas as the medium for these photographs in part because it allows the work to be
displayed without glass or acrylic. I also like how the texture of the canvas makes the images
look a bit like paintings, which fits in well with the time period (late 19th century) in which
the Nutcracker’s score was originally composed by Pyotr Tchaikovsky.
