Motion and dance are the main topic and objective of The Mirages that is the project able to reveal a mystery of fascinating grace being demonstrated by professional dancers, gymnasts and ballerinas. They set the tone for our photo sessions and thanks to them The Mirages has gained popularity both in Russia and worldwide.
How it was
The first photos capturing gracious moves of ballet dancers came out in 2015. A few months later we came up with a new idea: to show the dance in an “embrace” of white clouds. In such a way the internet saw a series of images that received plenty of positive feedback and marked the start of The Mirages project.
At the present time, our team includes not only ballerinas but also professional gymnasts, dancers and actors. Their bodies horned to perfection by long rehearsals are a paragon of perfect beauty, impeccable posture and grace. And what is more, they are a vessel full of infinitive perseverance and inflexible will. It is this insane mix of brittleness and hardness, lightness and strength that attracts our attention and allows us to create unique photos of the dance frozen in eternity.
