"FIERCELY GRACEFUL is a body of work dedicated to all dancers to celebrate their power and their grace as the ultimate expression of the sheer strength of human physical performance at its best. The balance between Power and Grace as the interaction of two opposite worlds coming together."
Nicola Majocchi has always looked at life with humor, drama and sensuality, all of it spiked with an element of risk - and his photography reflects as much. Dividing his time between his native Italy and the USA, Majocchi has had a colourful career, beginning as a downhill skier down the slopes of the Italian Alps and then collaborating for five years with the legendary photographer Irving Penn in New York City. Today Majocchi is an award-winning and internationally acclaimed photographer and lecturer whose images are known for their fusion of postmodern edginess and Euro-romanticism.
