These photos are the beginning of an intimate and profound story of the life of Ludmila Pagliero, “Etoile” dancer of the Paris Opera Ballet, known for her lack of openness to dancers trained outside her school. In 2012, Lyudmila became the first Argentinean and Latin American to achieve the supreme title. A life story made of dreams, surpassing and passion that goes beyond Ludmila as a dancer and on stage, and that aims to reveal, little by little, the woman who makes the artist, outside the Opera.
It is also a dialogue between her and me, between two women of the same generation, between two dreamers who have adopted the other’s country, between France and Argentina, between two cultures that make us a little bit of here, a little of elsewhere. It is also for me a return to the world of dance, which was my school and professional training during my youth.
The polaroid are pictures taken in Buenos Aires, inspired by Ludmila's memories from Paris.
