Gallery: 'Black Swan' Behind The Scenes Photos

Chances are if you read this site, you spend a lot of your time thinking about movies that are on the horizon. Whether it be through reading, discussion or just general anticipation, movies that you haven't seen are of the utmost importance. Then, once you see the movie in question, a few days pass, and it's on to the next thing. The positive side to this mindset is you always have something to look forward to. The negative is you can sometimes forget about the great films you're already done with.

For example, when Natalie Portman came out to award Best Actor at the Oscars last week, it took me a second to put two and two together. Of course, Portman deservidely won Best Actress the year before for her role in Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. That made me think of Black Swan again, which I hadn't done in several months and, wouldn't you know it? Some really cool behind the scenes photographs from that film taken by Ray Lewis are now online. Do a little reminiscing and check them out below.

These were taken by photographer Ray Lewis and come from the site Behance (via Aronofsky Films). To see more, head there or you can buy a full book of them at this site.

That's just six of a much larger set of photos. Great looking stuff.

Do you find what I wrote about to be true? It happens to me all the time. I'm always looking ahead but am happily surprised when I'm reminded of something that pleased me in the past. It's a nice nostalgic feeling and one of the great things about movies. If they elicit an emotion from you, they'll always be with you. These photos did that to me. What about you?
