Bolshoi Ballet: Lumiere Brothers Centre for Photography to exhibit company and backstage shots
Visitors will see over 50 photos taken between 1992 and 2016.

On 28 June, a Bolshoi Ballet exhibition will open at the Lumiere Brothers Centre for Photography. Visitors will see over 50 photos of the ballet company and the Bolshoi backstage taken between 1992 and 2016, including posed portraits and shots of rehearsals and performances.

The photos were taken by Sasha Gusov. He received worldwide recognition after publishing photos from the Bolshoi in the British Journal of Photography. Gusov received cooperation offers from the English National Ballet, the Royal Opera House, the Royal National Theatre, The Daily Telegraph and The Times newspapers, and famous fashion magazines. He worked with the Sotheby’s and Christie’s auction houses, made reports from different countries and took photos of film and music stars and politicians. Gary Oldman, Jude Law, Ewan McGregor and even Queen Elizabeth II have posed for his camera.

The exhibition will run until 23 September.
