I perfectly remember the observation : Aurélie Dupont, rehearsing in New York, in Marta Graham studio. Privilege. We spent hours together in that studio, otherwise we've been walking in the snow : after a terrible snow storm, NYC was immaculate. It was in January 2016, and I never forgot the privilege of photographing Aurélie in Marta Graham studio. Through the window, we could see the skyline and the river.
The privilege was new and familiar when I photographed again Aurélie last Saturday, rehearsing & performing another solo after Marta Graham.
Apparition, indeed. Or Art Vivant. What I love: in and out of time, ultimately present in a fleeting moment.
Aurélie Dupont, Principal dancer & Director of Paris Opera Ballet : a true artist, one of a kind.
