Daniel Neuhaus
Nutcracker Snowflakes, 2015
from the series Ballet

Over the course of 4 years, Toronto-based photographer Daniel Neuhaus gained rare access to The National Ballet of Canada’s dancers as they rehearsed backstage. The resulting photographs are an intimate, and unique window into the company; the images are raw, up close and unpolished. Daniel’s ability to develop a relationship of mutual trust around a traditionally very guarded industry, allow these photographs to have a sincere informality that we don’t often see in official ballet portraits. The photograph “Nutcracker Snowflakes” was taken during the dress rehearsal for the 2015 production of the Nutcracker at the National Ballet of Canada. Daniel focused on the chaos backstage by cramming as many dancers into the frame as he could, and tried to get as close as possible without disrupting the dancers and the performance. His relationship with the ballet was instrumental in the creation of this image because they wouldn’t usually allow a photographer to squeeze in between all the corps like this during a live performance when they were about to dash onstage.

These photographs are available in the indicated sizes, and are available to purchase FRAMED.

Simply select the size you want (to your right) and check out as you normally would.

The work will arrive directly to your door, and will arrive in a solid white wood archival frame with no mat as pictured here. 
We recommend a white frame with no mat for this work, however, we are also able to accomodate a white mat and a black or beech frame - just send an email to with your preference or any questions you may have.
