The Pointe Project was conceived and shot by London-based photographer, Pete Bartlett.
The ballerinas are representative of the international nature of dance in London. They come from the US, Canada, Greece, Lebanon, Latvia, France, Belgium, Lithuania, Italy, Israel, Australia, Holland and the UK. They are working here for ballet companies such as the English National Ballet, Ballet Rambert and the European Ballet.
The first set of images were shot in and around Notting Hill over the Olympic summer of 2012. The project has continued each Summer since with locations all over London with dancers from all over the world.
Prints of each image are for sale here.
