Alexander Iziliaev (“Sasha”) former Principal Dancer with Pennsylvania Ballet. His unprecedented access to the company both on and off the stage, allows him to capture candid rehearsal images as well as polished performance photos. His intuitive eye is able to capture a leap at its peak, recognize a perfect body position or record a subtle nuance within a movement. Sasha’s photos reflect the magic of a dancer photographing his friends.
