The extraordinary dance photography of Michael Khoury, shot exclusively for Orange Coast
Khoury's boxed coffee table book covering the repertoire of the Eifman Ballet Theater of St. Petersburg, Russia, "The Art of Boris Eifman" (Dergham Publishing and Printing), is available here.
As a young news photographer in his native Lebanon, Michael Khoury had the opportunity to capture the performances of Alvin Ailey and Maurice Bejart. Today, more than 30 years later, after receiving a Fulbright scholarship and an MFA in Film at New York University, he still holds the same intense passion for dance photography. He regularly shoots some of the world's most prestigious dance companies, including San Francisco Ballet, Ballet Nacional de Cuba, and Alvin Ailey, and the Eifman Ballet.
