The latest series of photograps by Euro Rotelli, The Body The Soul, depicts 27 dancers from 17 ballet houses going back to 2009. The series does not deal with the current socially-engaged, analytical issues and contexts of contemporary art. The author is not interested in the prima-ballerina’s distorted fingers, the stress of professional dancers; he is not analyzing the backgrounds behind ballet spectacles, nor the role of capital in these relationships. His interest remains focused on the very essence of the dance, owing to which the dancers still endure such sacrifice and spectators still admire. The beauty of movement and motion, the mysticism of dance, the power to express the spiritual with the body. The body, the soul.
The book is also available as numbered and signed limited edition of 50 presented in a blue box, with a digital archival print (27X27cm).
