Escrime by Jean Baptiste Courtier

Words

We’ve featured French photographer Jean Baptiste Courtier previously on the blog. Now he drew our attention to his latest work entitled ‘Escrime’ (‘Fencing’) where he showed a couple of fencers doing ballet outdoors. The contrast between the veiled fencers and the classy ballet is what first strikes the viewer though if you start to think about it, the sports have more in common than one might think.
