Montreal-based photographer Benjamin Von Wong, who wowed us with his shockingly creative photos of a man on fire, is no stranger to epic concepts and photo shoots. His most recent adventure may have been one of his most ambitious yet: a large-scale shoot involving two models, seven divers, and an underwater shipwreck off the shores of Bali. The result is a series of breathtaking images depicting ethereal models exploring the sunken ruins of the 50-year-old shipwreck, their hair and gowns flowing gracefully in the currents of the ocean, as elegant and mysterious as sea nymphs or ancient goddesses.
Boston Ballet’s Sugar Plum Fairy wears two costumes in Mikko Nissinen’s The Nutcracker. The first (top photo) can be seen at the beginning of Act 2 where she greets Clara and the Nutcracker Prince. The second (bottom photo) can be seen at the end of Act 2 and the Grand Pas de Deux.
Do you know how many jewels adorn the Nutcracker costumes seen under the lights of the Boston Opera House?
