About

Digital C-print Signed, dated, and numbered, verso 20 x 24 inches (Edition of 9) 30 x 40 inches (Edition of 5) This photograph is offered by ClampArt, located in New York City. Please note that prices increase as editions sell. Rachel Papo's series, "Desperately Perfect," focuses upon students at the renowned Vaganova Ballet Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia. From the age of ten until eighteen; twelve hours a day; six days a week; on the barre or in the classroom; students of this school spend the majority of their youth in fierce competition with one another. In their hope for fame, fortune, and a better life, these adolescents strive for a level of perfection that seems always just out of reach. Papo, inspired by her own memories of nine years of ballet classes as a child, emphasizes the emotional side of these children’s experience. Rachel Papo was born in 1970 in Columbus, Ohio, and raised in Israel. She began photographing as a teenager and attended a renowned fine arts high school in Haifa. At age eighteen, she served in the Israeli Air Force as a photographer. She earned a BFA in Fine Arts from Ohio State University (1991-1996), and an MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York City (2002-2005). Papo's photographs are included in numerous public and private collections, and have been exhibited and published worldwide. She currently lives in Berlin working on personal projects, as well as accepting commissioned projects. Her first book, "Serial No. 3817131," was published by powerHouse Books in 2008. She was selected as a finalist for the “Santa Fe Prize for Photography,” and was been awarded a NYFA Fellowship in 2006. In 2009 Rachel won a Lucie Award for “Deeper Perspective Photographer of the Year.”
