In an intimate photography series Christopher Anderson shadows ballet dancer David Hallberg to show a day in his life. Featured in New York Magazine's 'Life in Pictures,' the images show Hallberg doing every day things like talking with friends and traveling on public transit. He can also be seen stretching at the barre, kissing the hand of a young fan and wiping the sweat off his face after a performance.

Currently a principle dancer at both the Bollshoi Ballet and the American Ballet Theatre, David Hallberg engages in several rituals on the day of a performance. In addition to enjoying eggs, sausage and a stack of pancakes at a local diner, the ballet dancer also maintains strength by doing planks in his tights before putting on the rest of his costume.
