On the 7th of December with the support of Hennessy, PRIME and ELLE magazine RuArts Gallery of Contemporary Art celebrates its 8th anniversary. On that occasion RuArts gallery presents a new photography project made by the famous French actor, director and screenwriter Vincent Perez (Vincent Pérez) with the stars of the Bolshoi Theatre, which is called "Bolshoi".
A series of "Bolshoi" includes about 50 works and appears to be a part of a large-scale international photo project "Paris-Moscow" with the world known ballet stars, which began with the Paris Grand Opera, where he worked with such stars of French ballet as Nicolas Le Riche (Nicolas Le Riche) and Elisabeth Platel (Elisabeth Platel).
In Moscow Vincent exclusively presents the first dancers of the Bolshoi Theatre – Nikolai Tsiskaridze, Ekaterina Shipulina, Maria Alexandrova, Svetlana Zakharova and others. "Bolshoi" includes photos of rehearsals at the Bolshoi, backstage of the theater, as well as portraits of dancers.
«When I am a photographer, the actor is not there anymore. But when I am acting the photographer is still around».
Vincent Pérez (1964, Switzerland) is a prominent French actor, film director and script writer, as well as a gifted photographer and a long-standing admirer of the Bolshoi Theatre.
Vincent became world famous after he took part in a film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni "Beyond the Clouds", then in a mystical thriller "The Crow: City of Angels" and " Fanfan la tulipe".
One of Vincent's first passions was the camera, so at the age of fifteen, he began to study photography at the Ecole des Art Appliques at Centre Doret in Vevey, Switzerland. Two years later he made the decision to switch over to acting. Recently he has turned professional, working for French magazines, such as Premiere and Milk. On a personal level, the exhibition of his photography called "From Vladivostok to Paris" was held in Russia in 2011 and the exhibition called "Matieres et Sentiments" at the BHV Observatory in Paris in summer 2012.
