Powerful Portraits of Classical Dancers

What Lies Beneath is a series by photographer Rick Guest who wanted to show, through portraits, the dexterity and devotion of classical dancers, how much their bodies carry the stigmates of their passion. Behind costumes, make up and tutus, hide real athletes’ bodies. He operates a great panorama of the biggest dancers and most prestigious dance companies, included the Royal Ballet : Ed Watson, Olivia Cowley, Eric Underwood, Sarah Lamb, Steven McRae, Tamara Rojo, or also Sergei Polunin.
