Alexey Brodovitch's Ballet is a wonderful book. But it's also one of the rarest and most sought-after photo books in the world. So far, I only knew those parts of this seminal work that were reproduced in Jane Livingston's The New York School. However, the very commendable Books on Books series recently released a "study" of Ballet which I immediately ordered.

The funny coincidence now is that the book arrived about a week ago and two days later I had to bring my daughter to her ballet lessons and (what I usually don't have to) pick her up again an hour later. Inspired by Brodovitch's book, I decided to take my Leica with me and stay there in order to take some shots. Here's the one I like best. And, yes, these are my daughter's feet.
