Gillian Deery & James Lasky In 'On Point' By Alex & Iggy As Dance Meets the Runway

Models.com explores the connections between dance and modeling, posing the question “would Naomi Campbell or Karlie Kloss be as dynamic on the runway without their ballet training?”

To say fashion draws inspiration from dance is an understatement. Movies may excite, music can captivate, but the power of dance is almost visceral. Photographers, designers and editors have long looked to the work of Legnani or Nureyev when in search of inspiration and today’s stars from Benjamin Millepied to Misty Copeland wield influence from the pages of Vogue to the runways of Paris.

Photographers Alex & Iggy capture Gillian Deery and James Lasky, two classically-trained dancers who are also pursuing modeling careers. Their exquisite ‘On Point’ poses showcase the often ethereal serenity and beauty of dancers flying solo or encapsulated in each others beings.

Steve McCurry's 'Oltre lo Sguardo' Exhibit Of 150 Gripping Images At Villa Reale di Monza in Italy

Steve McCurry ‘An elderly man of the Rabari tribe’, Rajasthan, India, 2010Esteemed American photographer Steve McCurry, well-known for his gripping, colorful and evocative images of humanity around the world is among the finest documentary photographers in the world.

Born in Philadelphia, McCurry graduated from the College of Arts and Architecture at the Pennsylvania State University. McCurry worked for a newspaper for two years, before leaving for India to freelance. It was in India that McCurry learned — in his own words — to watch and wait on life.

“If you wait,” he realized, “people will forget your camera and the soul will drift up into view.”

150 of McCurry’s most astonishing photos of human diversity are on exibit at the Villa Reale di Monza in Italy. The exhibition, titled “Oltre lo Sguardo” will be on exhibit until April 6, 2015.

“For me a portrait is about connection, somehow you connect with a person, visually or emotionally,” explains McCurry to designboom. “I’ve often believed that a person’s life stories are kind of written on their face. It’s magical, it’s mystical the way you can connect to a person, it’s hard to describe. You know it when you see it.”
