Freed from their everyday environment, Hungarian ballerinas do pirouettes and splits to show their passion for dance, Boredpanda.com tells.
Tünde Dóra photographer’s Ballerina Project is about more than simply photos and documentation. Its aim is to pay a nod of respect to the essence of human motion, ballet, and to bring passion to the streets of Budapest. It was Dane Shitagi who came up with the idea 14 years ago, of immortalizing the Hungarian ballerinas’ talent. The photos intend to reveal the “mysterious gracefulness” in the motions of the ballerinas, Boredpanda.com tells.
The dancers are taken away from the stage – this time the scenery is our living space, the city milieu, simple everyday life. The redirecting of Shitagi’s Ballerina into a more sculptural presence took the attention of not only the bloggers community and the international press, but that of a young Hungarian photographer, Tünde Dóra, who also realized the power within.
The scenery is the city milieu, the everyday life being represented by the photo backgrounds: metro stations, bridges, baths, streets, parks, all around the Hungarian capital. Thanks to the unconventional, surreal locations, the soft motions of the ballerinas, and for the charm emanating from the photos, the project gained international attention, Boredpanda.com informs.
Ballerina Project Hungary has posted over a hundred photographs with the aim of getting the passion of dance closer to the people of our streets.
