Fermé is a classic ballet position and means closed in French. I loved the way the light illuminates the satin in this “closed” pair of slippers. These dancers’ shoes show some wear and are reminiscent of the long hours that artists put into their performance before the public sees the “perfection” that the artist presents. The reflection of the satin plays off the woodgrain of the dance floor, marrying the hard and silky textures.
