Fanny Müller, one of the best known Hungarian nude models, and photographer András Bácskai created a photo series focusing on a ballerina who dances in urban spaces and on public transport vehicles of major cities, including Budapest.
Fanny and András, one of the best urban photographers of Hungary, have launched the project last year. At first, they only shot in Budapest, but later added pictures from metros, buses and tunnels of Vienna, Hong Kong, Dubai or New York.
She is also a dancer, so she knows her body very well, can control her movements on the photos, and she is very flexible when posing. As a result of her theatre past, she can also control her mimics, expressions and body language.
The ballerina theme is not new for her: dancing always played an important role in her life. She studied ballet, jazz, folk dance, and tried Irish tap dance as well. She is constantly learning different forms of movement and pushing her boundaries, her new passion is aerial acrobatics.
According to Fanny, many people mix up nude modeling with prostitution, but she says although nudity is part of her work, she is only naked during the photoshoots and she set the limits of working with customers and photographers. The most important is the result, which should be innovative and exciting, but also artistic – she makes sure that intimate parts are not visible on the photos.
We have selected some of our favourites from the Urban Balerina photo series:
