Sygma for Life / American Ballet Theatre

01 January, 1995

Principal dancer Guillaume Graffin. To make a souvenir book of portraits for the American Ballet Theatre a wardrobe room at the Metropolitan Opera was converted into a studio. Principal dancers were asked to wear costumes and create characters, while soloists - who rank lower in the ballet hierarchy - wore their own clothes.
