Jim Vision’s Dancers

So, we didn’t realise this was a thing, but apparently it’s World Ballet Day today….Happy (belated) World Ballet Day! In honour of this bizarre worldwide holiday we’ve compiled a few of our favourite shots of dancers in front of Jim Visions walls.

Below are the images from the Breakdown Circus crew at the Trocadero, Christian & Mikaela in Buenos Aires, Justin Reid Instagram grab from shutter in Bushwick NY, Vik Taak shooting Olivia Grace Cowley on Redchurch street & the models for Mei Hui store in Brick lane, Turville street.

In light of these great images, we’d also like to bring attention to 2 great photographers among the bunch that have taken some stunning shots of dancers in front of walls:

Vik Taak who is a London based photographer who has been taking some images of dancer Olivia Grace Cowley in front of a number of pieces including Jim Vision, Mr Cenz & David Walker.

Justin Reid is a Brooklyn based dance photographer who has taken shots of a number of different talents everywhere from Brooklyn bridge to the Botanical gardens.

Take a look at some of their snaps below…

Fakso: Video by Dscreet: VNA

A year or so ago we were in sunny Buenos Aires; throwing blue paint everywhere, chatting to the locals and working on a large scale mural for Meeting of Styles. Not a year later we were happy to hear the news that Alex Fakso was to visit the city, and here is a brilliant record of his time there with an insight into this process and attitude to photography and the subjects he chooses.

Fakso is a great photographer, representing a world that we cannot see. An avid capturer of street art in the process, his photos show real life people with real life issues in real life dirty dark tunnels. Let’s just say on his trip to Buenos Aires he didn’t get much sun, instead lied low, stayed dangerous and got on with it.

Having already released a couple of great books on his work, Fakso is storming his way through street art urban culture and telling us how it is. A graffiti writer himself, he claims he is now not telling the stories, but creating the pictures. Part of the reason for his move from street art to photography was due to the way photography captures more attention to detail than the painting on the wall can. Not to mention a photograph is forever, and walls get painted over.

The video below, filmed by Dscreet for Very Nearly Almost, documents Fakso’s trip to Buenos Aires alongside some words about his work. Check it out!
