Moulin Rouge: Instants Volés

Moulin Rouge: Instants Volés by Vlada Krassilnikova (Editions du Collectionneur) Based on a striking series of black and white pictures, this book chronicles the artist’s voyage from aspiring dancer to full-fledged performer, to nostalgic photographer – via photo documentation focusing on women at today’s Moulin Rouge. The first Russian to join the troupe back in 1993, Krassilnikova combines first-hand anecdotes with a personal look at the showgirls as they prepare for a performance. A mix of “truth and fantasy,” her work penetrates the spectacle of this world-famous landmark, portraying the real individuals inside it, through behind-the-scenes images.
