Steven McRae - Dancer in the Fast Lane gives a close up look at the ballet and dance world's newest, flame-haired star.

Born and raised in the world of Australia's high octane, drag-racing circuit, Steven effortlessly moves between the sophistication of his interpretations of the greatest ballet roles as a Principal of The Royal Ballet, to full throttle blasts of tap. Once again photographer Andrej Uspenski has used his exclusive vantage point as a First Artist with The Royal Ballet to give us glimpses of a dancer becoming a true dance supernova.

"For admirers of dazzling Royal Ballet dancer Steven McRae... a record of McRae's performing life astutely captured by Andrej Uspenski, a gifted photographer... The bright images of McRae's interpretations are exactly caught." - Financial Times

"The photographs in this book... highlight Uspenski’s considerable skill in capturing moments of art." Ballet News

"It’s a particularly nice touch showing rehearsal and show pictures side by side... [Upenski’s] photographs are stunning snapshots of life backstage as well as the glory of ballet on the stage regardless of words, history, context and all, the gorgeous images of Steven in his classical and dramatic roles that make up this photographic record speak for themselves." The Stage

About the Author:

Andrej Uspenski was born in St Petersburg and trained at the Vaganova Ballet Academy and subsequently in Dresden and Berlin. He has been a member of The Royal Ballet for ten years. Andrej grew up with photography, spending much time in his father’s darkroom. Surrounded by the Royal Ballet’s supremely talented dancers on a daily basis and drawn to capture their artistry both on and off stage, he discovered his own passion for photography. His photographs can be seen in Royal Opera House programmes as well as national magazines and newspapers.
