A new exhibition of photographs by Rick Guest featuring images of members of The Royal Ballet will be on display at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden in January 2016.
The exhibition, entitled What Lies Beneath, will be accompanied by the release of two books of photographs. The first — of the same name — features photographs from the exhibition and the second commemorates Rick’s 2013 exhibition, The Language of the Soul.
The two collections — which include photographs of Royal Ballet Principals Edward Watson, Sarah Lamb, Steven McRae, Lauren Cuthbertson, Zenaida Yanowsky, Marianela Nuñez and Thiago Soares in addition to other members of the Company — share many themes. Both strip back the many production elements of a stage performance to offer an insight into the skills and sacrifices of the dancers to create an impression of effortless beauty.
The exhibition What Lies Beneath runs 22–31 January 2016 at The Hospital Club, Covent Garden.
