Photographer Alexander Yakovlev has truly captured the essence and strength of the dancers in the photographs. The powerful pictures are apart of his new series titled The Mirages. He captures dancers mid-pose as all their limbs are extended as they dance. He also includes a new, neat concept where he puts flour on the ground and has the dancer moves among it and pick it up and throw it around. It creates a clean composition and really accentuates the dancers by contrasting with the background.
