If there can be an Instagram account dedicated to the hot dads at Disneyland, there can definitely be one to showcase ballerina photography. Ballet dancer Darian Volkova began her photographic project a year ago called Soul in Feet, the images from which are now being shared on Instagram. The social media account displays the stunning movement and elegant lines of dancers.
Based in Saint Petersburg, Russia, the classical dancer and photographer offers insight into her profession. The artistic ballerina photography acts as an ode to the performance art, capturing soaring leaps, graceful lifts and delicate poses. Whether the subjects are practicing at the barre, performing on stage or posing just for Volkova in a series of challenging and beautiful positions, the pictures nail it every time.
