Escapism and theatre

Dutch photographer, Krista van der Niet's photos for Utrecht theatre's new cultural season are very well art directed. The photographer does not use photoshop (yay!). The design for Utrecht City Theatre is by Edenspiekermann Partners. The imaginary, slightly surreal poses of dancers and actors on an otherwise neutral studio background effectively communicate what theatre is about - escapism. The photographer has this to say about this project:

“For me theatre is above all fantasy and temporary escapism, stepping into a different world. My pictures are partly unreal and surrealistic, yet made in a natural way...I searched for a strong counterpart concept for the dividing pages; clear and simple aesthetic images that communicate directly and incite fantasy and wonder."
