A Dancer’s View: Light and Shadow by Andre Uspenski

In his inaugural exhibition of fine art photography at the Old Truman Brewery on 27th April

movement to explore light and shadow through the dynamics of the human form.

the Company in 2002, was promoted to First Artist in 2004, and since being forced to retire

as a dancer in 2015 due to injury, regularly photographs rehearsals and performances for

the Company. He continues to work with premier dancers and choreographers worldwide.

He has published the photography books Dancers: Behind the Scenes with The Royal

Ballet (2013), Natalia Osipova: Becoming a Swan (2013) and Steven McRae: Dancer in the

Fast Lane (2014).

Uspenski was born in St Petersburg and trained at the Vaganova Ballet Academy, the

Palucca School, Dresden, and the Berlin State Ballet School. He graduated into Royal Danish

Ballet in 1999, joining The Royal Ballet in 2002.
