What do you get when you cross a Julliard trained dancer with a BFA in Dance and a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography? The answer is: someone like Jubal Battisti

Jubal is a NYC based photographer and a dancer with Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet.  His photographic work has appeared in Elle Decor magazine, Dance Spirit magazine, Metro NY, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the Silver Eye Center of Photography in Pittsburgh. Most recently, his images have been used in Dance magazine and exhibited at the Peridance Capezio Center.

He frequently collaborates with choreographers and dancers utilizing the intuitive kinesthetic timing and aesthetics developed through his dance experience. This spirit is featured in his work showcased in Persona - a photography book illustrating the work of choreographer Sidra Bell; the following video showcases Jubal Battisti's sumptuous work, perfectly marrying the arts of photography and dance.

5 Most Expensive Art Photographs in the World

Most Expensive Photograph #1: "Rhein II" by Andreas Gursky, 1999 - Christie's
The world of photography galleries and the fine art photography genre is glamorous, competitive, and lucrative. Attracting record sales, the space is heating up considerably. According to Francis Outred, Christie's Head of Post War and Contemporary Art Europe, there will be an uptick in photography setting new auction sales records. Here are his comments after Andreas Gursky's 1999 "Rhein II" (see photo above) sold for a record $4.3 million in November 2011, making it the most expensive photograph to date.
Photography has progressed rapidly over the past 170 years, but most dramatically in the last thirty years with the adaptation of large scale, full color images, so that the masterpieces of today stand up against most of their historical predecessors. As such, their scale, presentation, and concepts make the best works outstanding works of art which stand up against anything in history. In my opinion, this price will come to be seen as extremely reasonable in future.
Here are the highest prices paid for fine art photography (per Wikipedia):
 
 
Andreas Gursky, Rhein II (1999), $4,338,500, November 8, 2011, Christie's New York (top photo).
