We all are surely used to seeing dancers on stage. But while admiring their performances, we can easily forget that they are not only performers, but also human beings.
"The problem with dance, is that it's been done. A lot. For a long time," David Perkins, a New York-based photographer known for his work with dancers, told A Plus. "You see dancers on stage, you see them in city streets, in front of monuments, even in the forest. But you never see them at home."
And this is exactly what Perkins focuses on in his series titled "Home Stage," snapping intimate photos dancers in their natural habitat — their home.
Who would have thought getting a cup of coffee could be that... well.. dashing.
As Perkins explained to A Plus in an email, he has been photographing dancers since his first year in college at Savannah College of Art and Design.
"A professor noticed my interest in the human form during a project and told me about a craigslist ad placed by a local high schools dance department.," he said. "Long story short, my life changed over night. I met with them and dance and movement has been the core of my photography every since."
