“Ballerina,” a photo by former Texas A&M visualization student Igor Kraguljac ‘08, was selected for inclusion in “Best of the Best Photographers 2013,” a collection of creative images from photographers worldwide distributed to top advertising agencies, art directors and art buyers.

The photo, which depicts Jessica Lott, a student in Texas A&M’s dance program, in midair surrounded by cascading sand, is part of a series of photos Kraguljac is creating in collaboration with Christine Bergeron, the dance program’s director.

Kraguljac is also shooting a series of street dance performances in New York and Chicago and photos for his ongoing series Renaissance MMVIII, inspired by the chiaroscuro style used by Carvaggio, an Italian artist who lived from 1571-1610.

His work has been displayed in numerous venues, including the Idea Generation Gallery in London and the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colo.
