An homage to unifying art of dance, as captured over the course of 10 years and across four continents. A follow-up to the photographer Matthew Brookes’s 'Les Danseurs', published in 2015, 'Expression of Freedom' once again deep-dives into the melliferous world of dance, celebrating the togetherness and inclusivity found through the art form.

In the last ten years, Brookes traveled across four continents for this grand photographic project, capturing dancers in motion within their geographic contexts—Paris, Milan, London, Tokyo, South Africa, New York, Brazil and Los Angeles.

The dancers showcased are representative of a diverse array of backgrounds and ages; acclaimed professionals share space with street performers. Dancers include: Marie-Agnès Gillot, Aurélie Dupont, Carolyn Carlson, Roberto Bolle, Friedemann Vogel, Hugo Marchand, Germain Louvet, Guillaume Diop, Leroy Mokgatle, Matthew Ball, Megan Lecrone. They are representatives of the most prestigious dance companies in the world, such as the Paris Opera Ballet, the Royal Ballet in London, La Scala Ballet in Milan, Stuttgart Ballet and the NYC Ballet Company.

The English born photographer Matthew Brookes, raised in South Africa and then spent many years in Paris where he discovered his passion for photography. His images have been featured in several publications like Vanity Fair, Vogue, L’uomo Vogue, The New York Times’ T Magazine, Interview and British and Spanish Vogue. He also works closely with a variety of luxury brands Giorgio Armani, Hugo Boss, Cartier, Ralph Lauren, Zegna, among others. He divides his time between Paris and New York.
