Renown photographer Lisa Tomasetti's stunning body of work "Behind the Scenes: The Australian Ballet on the International Stage" presents photographs of the Australian Ballet taken on their tours to Tokyo, Paris and New York City. In this her first exhibition at 'Salerno Gallery' (70 Glebe Point Rd, Glebe, NSW) Tomasetti has removed the ballerinas from the stage as they dance, pirouette and leap through the city streets. These delightful images fuse high gloss performance with gritty urban reality, while capturing the passion for movement embodied by the dancers. Exhibition dates: April 14-28th 2013.
