Jana Cruder is a photographer who divides her work between New York and Los Angeles, and has dabbled in almost all possible fields of image: advertising, conceptual, editorial, fashion and celebrities. In the Ballet series she captures members of Aspen Ballet Company in full swing adding colored powder that complement the physical and kinetic aesthetics of each shoot, giving a vibrant and deep presence to the protein nature of the dance. Cruder herself defines her style as part of a hyper-realistic imagery with a taste of soul. Her way of combining conceptual photography with an aesthetic of vibrant colors gives her work a unique playful tone and a trademark.
