We stumbled across the amazing dancer portraits of Alexander Yakovlev this past week, when his subtle and subtly stunning flour photography portrait “Big Bang” took off and popped up all over everybody’s Flow:

As you might expect, this inspired us to have a look at the rest of Alexander’s profile, and what we found was a phenomenal studio dance photographer who really knows what he’s doing.

His flour shots are awesome, but that is far from the only style of portrait he takes. Black-and-white meets color, ballet meets break dance, and static poses meet wild mid-air freeze frames in Alexander’s portfolio.

But words will never do this profile justice, so we’ll just shut up and let his photos do the rest of the talking. Scroll down, enjoy, and remember to pick your jaw up off the floor when you’re done.

This is just a taste of Alexander’s work. To see more, follow him on 500px, visit his website, or check him out on Instagram.
