Photography by
Hans van Manen

This lovely package, photographed by legendary Dutch dancer and choreographer Hans van Manen, graces BUTT’s monthly splash page for November. Van Manen was primarily known for his austere and erotically-charged approach to movement — his formal choreography established him as the Mondrian of ballet — but he was also an avid photographer. Here he is clearly under the influence of Robert Mapplethorpe, with whom he was friendly.
