Justin Slee is pleased and excited to announce his new photography exhibition titled Avant. 

The show is to be held at the Gallery in Leeds, on Monday 30th March - Saturday 11th April  2015.


A photography exhibition that is the result of a partnership between Leeds based photographer Justin Slee and the award winning dance company Northern Ballet.

Over the last few years the company has granted editorial and portrait photographer Justin Slee privileged access observing and recording the companies work, up close and personal. Allowing him time to witness the commitment, people and process behind creating outstanding visual dance productions. 

The resulting images form the exhibtion titled Avant. A collection of photographs that illustrate the dedication, professionalism and endeavour of the world of modern ballet through contemporary documentary and portrait photography.

Justin Slee is a portrait and documentary photographer working in the areas of editorial and commercial photography. His style has a strong design aesthetic with a clean composition. As a former design graduate his eye is drawn to the unusual and to the detail. Having worked in visual image making for a large period of his career he always looks to communicate a strong story and moment with his photography.

Northern Ballet is a powerhouse of inventive dance. Confident and bold in approach and a company who attempt to engage, involve and move audiences through passionate story-telling.
