I'm not sure why I like photographs of ballet dancers so much. I didn't go to ballet as a girl (I was always happy playing with my pony in the mud) - I've never been to the ballet, its random. I really love that something associated with beauty, delicacy and prettiness, is actually pretty fucking hardcore and intense. Or something. Anyway these photographs taken by Henry Leutwyler are good.
