Grace in Motion: The Moscow BalletArtist: Neil Chaput de Saintonge
Date: January 31, 2011
Rocky Mountain School of Photography Gallery is excited to announce the upcoming exhibit, Grace in Motion: The Moscow Ballet by photographer and RMSP co-owner, Neil Chaput de Saintonge of Missoula, MT.
Neil developed his appreciation for ballet and stage photography over the course of the eight years he spent photographing the Atlanta Ballet in Georgia prior to moving to Montana. Having lived in Missoula with his wife and son for the last 22 years, Neil says he still misses the opportunity to photograph professional ballet companies.
When he heard the news in early 2009 that the Moscow Ballet was visiting Montana, he jumped at the chance to photograph them behind the scenes. Gaining permission to follow the troupe from Butte to Helena to Missoula proved to be an involved and time-consuming process, but one that was well worth the effort.
The results of Neil's time spent traveling with these world-renowned dancers can be seen this coming Friday at Rocky Mountain School of Photography Gallery located at 216 N. Higgins Avenue in downtown Missoula. Neil will be present at the opening, which runs from 5 to 8 p.m.
