Photo: Burberry “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” That’s the sentiment that’s been echoing around social media since Friday, when Brooklyn Beckham—the 16-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham—announced that he’d be shooting the new campaign for Burberry’s ‘This Is Brit’ fragrance. It’s madness, you’d have to be working for a decade to achieve that.
Training for the chance to become a professional ballet dancer can take up to 10 years and 15 lessons per week, but somehow dancers make pirouettes and grand jetés on the stage look effortless, as if they all leapt out of the womb in leotards and pointe shoes. London-based photographer Rick Guest spent the past three years digging beyond the performance, photographing over a dozen top dancers like Tamara Rojo, artistic director of the English National Ballet, and Zenaida Yanowsky, principal of The Royal Ballet. The photographs, compiled in Guest’s second book, What Lies Beneath, will be on exhibit to the public from January 22 to January 31 at The Hospital Club in London. Unlike most professional photographs of ballet dancers, these individuals are shot in their daily practice gear — including worn-away leggings and cardigans — that serve more symbolic than functional purposes.“When I first started photographing ballet dancers, it was very much the journal of a love affair,” Guest tells Yahoo Beauty. “Not only was I enthralled and beguiled by these amazing creatures, and their grace, poise, and physical prowess, but I wanted to communicate the joy that it was to be standing mere feet from them.” While ballet is well known for creating an illusion of effortless movement — dainty pointe shoes hiding callouses and broken toenails — Guest decided to “peak behind the curtain” to reveal how much physical and mental exertion goes into becoming a top dancer. “I think it does a great disservice to the dancers not to know what they go through to achieve this effortless appearance, and only lends a more profound appreciation of their art,” he explains. “It’s a little like the old line about the fact that Ginger Rogers could do everything Fred Astaire could, but backwards and in high heels!”While American Ballet Theatre principal Misty Copeland is becoming well known in the United States, many talented ballet dancers at top companies are still anonymous to the general public. The backstage life of an elite ballet dancer, after all, isn’t as glamorous as it appears on-stage, from low wages to physical pain to long hours of practice that turn into late night performances. “It would be my hope that by projecting their art through a different prism, people who wouldn’t usually go to the ballet might be drawn in and cast under its spell,” Guest says. Take a sneak peak at some of the photos from the book and exhibition — with commentary from the photographer himself.Related:How Cuba Produces Some of the Best Ballet Dancers in the WorldMisty Copeland Named First Black Principal Ballerina at American Ballet TheatreMisty Copeland on Becoming One of the First Black Ballerinas to Dance ‘Swan Lake’
How do you catalog your life’s work? If you’re photographer Kelly Klein, a former fashion exec and the ex-wife of Calvin Klein, you spend three years combing your archives and revisiting every memory and shoot as if it happened yesterday. A daunting task to be sure. “I’ve done many coffee table books, photography books, and I have never done one with my photographs mainly because I didn’t really know how to do it,” says Klein, who, as an author and editor, has published tomes on singular subjects of interest including Pools, Horse, and Cross. Photographs by Kelly Klein, her latest work, is a lot more personal, and peels back the curtain of her worldly travels and experiences with some of the biggest names in fashion, business, and celebrity. “I found a lot of images that meant a lot to me at the time that I took them and when I looked at them recently they still meant a lot to me,” she tells Yahoo Style. “I started with a lot of fashion photographs and most of them were outtakes. And then I mixed that with the Instragrams, which I love taking now, and I mixed it all up.”The result is no ordinary scrapbook. Part travelogue, part portfolio, Photographs is a fun trip down fashion memory lane. It features images of Shalom Harlow, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, and Gisele Bundchen (“She was just a girl named Gisele”) during their nascent modeling days, candid photos of Carolyn Bessette and JFK Jr., behind-the-scene moments from far-flung shoots with Iman and Bruce Weber, and even “sleeping moguls” (ie Calvin, David Geffen, Sandy Gallin, and Barry Diller asleep on a yacht in Mustique). Thanks to an afterword by pop culture scribe Bob Colacello, the book shares a little known tale about how, in the ’80s, Calvin bought Kelly a gold and diamond ring that once belonged to the Duchess of Windsor. It was inscribed with the word “eternity,” which later became the impetus for the designer’s signature fragrance. “I still have the ring,” concedes Klein. Consider that the crown jewel of her inspiring, well-lived life.Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
