Photographer Captures The Stunning Movements Of A Ballerina And Compares Them With Flowers

If we were asked to define beauty, these photos would definitely be a good example of it as they feature the graceful movements of a beautiful swinging ballerina compared to the different angles of blooming flowers. Both the ballerina’s gestures and the blooming flowers are graceful and fragile, showing the perfect forms nature creates which art can later replicate. This is the works of a famous Russian photographer Yulia Artemyeva.

Photographer Yulia Artemyeva from Nizhny Novgorod created this photo series “Ballerina and Flowers” to capture the moment when a ballerina’s gesture is as graceful and beautiful as a flower. The photo series consists of just 13 black and white images, but all of them carry a strong visual message and make us stop and stare at the details and similarities between them. Each pair of photos compares an image of a flower’s shape and a ballerina’s gesture replicating it.

The photographer picked the model Marina Mastyka to show the extraordinary beauty of a ballerina. Her airy ballerina dresses wonderfully resemble flower petals and her mesmerizing movements depict the actual form of flowers. Marina Mastyka’s arms are soft and rounded and you can see a forward tilt in the upper body, giving the flowery, willowy look.

Comparing women to flowers is a quite common motif in European and Asian cultures. This traditional motif can be found in poems, books, photography, and other art spheres. Even the famous writer William Shakespeare, who lived in the last part of the 16th and the early 17th century, found similarities between women and flowers, especially comparing the fragility of their sexuality (not to mention that Shakespeare even had a female character named Viola!)
