Picture of the Week, April 17, 2014

Another COC season, another array of perfect Michael Cooper photos - this one for Hercules (with Eric Owens). Mr. Cooper has ensnared the magic of the Peter Sellars production (with a brilliant set by George Tsypin and lighting by James F. Ingalls). The backdrop is a marvel, and the way it uses light and colour is as lovely as it is undistracting (the essence of a great set). But what Mr. Cooper has wrought bringing these elements together, for a truly timeless photo, is magic in its own right - the red slashed with the white of the central figure and the nightmarish all casting its reflection on the floor.
