Item description for In the Company of Stars: The Paris Opera Ballet by Gerard Uferas...

Gerard Uferas spent a year with the Paris Opera Ballet family, and his photographs lead readers into the private world of the Opera Garnier, Paris's landmark opera house. He took his camera backstage, into the wings, the practice halls named after the great figures in the history of ballet, and the ornate neo-Baroque foyer where the dancers gather to warm up before each performance. His images retrace the constant work, sometimes trying, often exhilarating, that fills the days at the ballet, revealing the concentration that precedes a dancer's entrance on to the stage, the poise and gestures, the moments of exertion and of rest. Uferas reveals the secrets of a usually cloistered world, documenting the toil, the dedication, and the months of preparation that culminate in moments of breathtaking beauty on the stage. By capturing forever the ephemeral art of the dance, the photographer has created an enduring homage to the otherwise fleeting professional lives of the dancers. The result is an art that transcends both dance and photography; a unique partnership with its own exquisite choreography.
Gerard Uferas contributes regularly to many newspapers and magazines, such as Time and The New York Times. He was one of the founding members of Agence Vu before joining Agence Rapho in 1993. Uferas has received several prizes for his work, which is featured at the Maison Européene de la Photographie in Paris, the National Gallery in London, and museums and galleries around the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about In the Company of Stars: The Paris Opera Ballet?

The pictures didn't really jump off the page...  Sep 18, 2007
I'd seen a documentary about the Paris Opera Ballet dancers, and I eagerly anticipated flipping through this book. I was expecting more photographs of the dancers actually dancing, as opposed to shots of people talking, etc. To be fair, this was touted as a "behind the scenes" look, not a compilation of performance photographs. But what enthralls me about these dancers is the amazing things they do; I'm not as riveted by them just standing still. I ended up returning the book, unfortunately. It was also oversized, so (even though it's meant to be more of a coffee-table book) it didn't fit on my bookshelf. Others may like the broader selection of pictures, but I was really hoping for more beautiful shots of dancers in motion.
