More often than not, trained dancers are used as models for their graceful movements full of strength and flexibility; Inframen by Nir Arieli, a photographer based in New York City, is a photo series that delves a little deeper. Focusing on more classic portraits, the series brings a different beauty to light, one that revolves around the sentiment put forth by the photographer, "To be a dancer is to work your body to the breaking point."

Shot using an infrared technique that reveals details that are under the subject's abused skin, Inframen by Nir Arieli exposes the fragility of being just human. Stark, subtle and surreal, the images nevertheless belie the power of their body and resolve.
