Oregon Ballet Theatre
Dramatic dance photographer Andy Batt was the photographic genius behind the OBT Season Brochure from 2003-2012, and has shot the dancers from the wings as well. The relationship between a photographer and a dancer is truly a collaboration, and working with the same subjects for an extended period of time can bring out the best in both artists.
For the 2012-13 season, Andy worked with many of the dancers to create stills and video of their productions.
