The new 'Curtain Call' photo shoot by Billy Kidd is a beautiful series of ballet-inspired photography. Featuring model Crystal Renn, Kidd's photography dramatically contrasts light and dark while simultaneously exploring movements of the human body.

Renn is breathtaking with a pale complexion accented by red lipstick and dark hair. Her ensembles are simple and clearly theater inspired. Each dress is stark-white and often features a lot of lace in its design. The effect is one of girlish charm that contrasts Renn's distraught expressions.

Billy Kidd's incomparable photography skills add to the emotionalism of the photo shoot. His use of shadows to highlight Renn's facial features and a pitch-black backdrop to accentuate the white ensembles results in a striking shoot. 'Curtain Call' effortlessly blends story, aesthetic and emotion into a memorable photo series.
