Falling in love with the "ladies"

In talks with Richard Farley.

Not the Texas Richard Farley aka the stalker but the type of bloke one would want to be stalked by,  the Principle dancer from The Royal Ballet who currently has a pop-up called Gallery 16 in Covent Garden.

Farley's exhibition, "A Life In Dance," consists of behind the scenes photographs freezing the lives such as Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn in seconds taken during his dance career in the 1950s. 

What was expected to be a 30 minute peek soon turned into nearly two hours of pure privilege as Farley himself reminisced tales of behind the scene rehearsals and days on the road performing.  Farley said "One must always have a lady, with a lovely lady anything in possible" but what exactly is a lady remains unknown.  Be it dance, be it photography or his stories about the ballerinas (his reason for pursing dance in the first place) Farley is definitely a man of many ladies.  

Truly worth popping in to hear even one of his stories - the photographer has arranged Gallery 16 himself and remains on premises until 5 March
