First recognized by Rudolf Nureyev, Roberto Bolle is renowned for his athletic ability, stylistic grace and a sizzling movie star presence.
Possessing broad appeal, his performances draw acclaim from the dance world and general public alike. This stunning book is the culmination of a three-year collaboration between Bolle and the photographic superstar Bruce Weber. Weber’s masterful images capture the dazzling charisma of a world-class talent.
^ Yeah, dancers and swimmers seem to have the greatest bodies, don't they? I remember reading how Bruce found several of Ralph Lauren's male models at swim meets- he would go and look for handsome guys and ask them if they were interested in being models! I guess if you're a big time swimmer you already have a lean, muscular bod- which is a good first step for a model!
