This beautiful and remarkable behind-the-scenes study of dancers, musicians and onlookers offers a social and narrative dimension to the everyday life at the legendary Bolshoi Ballet. “Gusov’s photographs are lightning fissures, apertures, openings. They are neat as the bullet marks made in the moving target of time by a master of the craft, and the weird and hopeless dawn that streams through these tightly clustered pinholes is the light of future.” —Andrei Navrozov Sasha Gusov specializes in portraiture, classical music, ballet and dance photography. He moved to England in 1989, where he got a job with printer Roy Snell who, when not working, allowed him access to the dark room. In 1993 his self-commissioned photographic project Images of the Bolshoi Ballet, published by the British Journal of Photography, earned him international recognition. Gusov’s work has since been widely published throughout the world. Photographic books include 25 years in Photography, 2014; Belarus: Terra Incognita, 2010; Royal Parks, 2011; Locusts, 2008; Italian Carousel, 2003 and Shooting Images, 2001.

This book recounts the life and loves of artists and writers, Leonora Carrington, Peggy Guggenheim, Dorothea Tanning, Leonor Fini, Meret Oppenheim, Gala, Luise Straus and Marie-Berthe Aurenche during their years with Max Ernst. Beginning in Cologne at the outbreak of war in 1914 and the eruption of Dada, it describes the birth and heyday of Surrealism in Paris in the 1920s and ends with its demise in New York in the 1940s. The years in between were a whirlwind that shredded the artists dreams and scattered them around the globe from Cologne, London and Paris, to Saigon, Marseille, Lisbon and New York. Their saga contains episodes of searing passion, madness and betrayal when they made great art and lost, found and abandoned one another in the process.
