совершенство.

Rachel Papo has an affecting set of portraits up on her site of students at St. Petersburg’s Vaganova Ballet Academy. Memories of stretching my feet under my mom’s piano during Northern Exposure and keeping track of my center-split progress via the number of floorboards between my crotch and the baseboard just came flooding back. If you’re in New York you should stop by to catch the prints in person at ClampArt in Chelsea–the show is up only until March 14.
