Rhys: A Photo Story

Rhys: A Photo Story

Inspired by Richard Avedon’s dance studio portraits of Rudolph Nuryev in 1961, these shots show the journey of a rehearsal, from arm up through to explosive finale.

As a young man, Rhys played ‘Billy’ in ‘Billy Elliot’ in the West End, and currently dances with English National Ballet.

Rhys and I have been chatting about working together for a few years now, and this felt like the perfect opportunity to create together. I’m so thrilled with the images we created, and I hope you enjoy them.
