Martha Graham Sixteen Dances in photographs by Barbara Morgan
This is the revised version of the famous 1941 classic, published in 1990 by Morgan and Morgan.
Review of the original publication. John Martin, Dance critic New Your times 1941
"Photographing the modern dance is tempting fate, for the modern dance deals not in static attitudes but in closely integrated faces of movement. Barbara morgan's success with her sequences of Martha Graham is therefore like achieving the impossible. She has not only made beautiful photographs steeped in the flavour of the highly personal artists style, but she has also, in some way, managed to project a sense of composition in action."
Anna Kisselgoff, Dance Critic of the New York Times 1980
"This book remains the most celebrated photographic treatment of a dancer....the beauty of these photographs is that one vision translates perfectly into another."
