The New York based photographer teamed up with the famed ballerina to produce this beautiful collection of artful images.
Gregg Delman presents a collection of pictures taken in studio sessions over a span of four years that elegantly captures the beauty, grace, sensuality, strength and athleticism of Misty Copeland as she took the dance, fashion and entertainment worlds by storm. Their photo shoots resulted in 95 intimate portraits now showcased in Delman’s book, which is an exceptional partnership between the sensitive eye of the photographer and the magnificence, passion, and generosity of his subject. This is a collaborative collection of images that celebrate the most well-known force in 21st-century ballet as she jumps, twists and stares powerfully into the camera.
Since becoming the first African-American woman to be named a principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre, Copeland has become a cultural phenomenon, and Delman’s arresting pictures capture her sinewy power and grace.
