Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this collection of 87 duotone images that virtually leap off the page, Lois Greenfield's revolutionary photographs capture the explosive energy and beauty of dancers' bodies in motion. Made between 1982 and 1991, they are the result of a collaboration between Greenfield and a group of extraordinary dancers asked to "leave their choreography at the door." They take risks, pushing to the absolute limits the boundaries of both dance and photography with an energy so forceful it seems barely contained by the black lines of the camera frame. Edited, sequenced, and with an introductory essay by William Ewing, including an interview with Lois Greenfield, Breaking Bounds is dance photography on the edge. Sensual and mesmerizing, these images will entrance dancer and non-dancer alike — as well as anyone who loves fine photography — with their powerful, elegant depiction of the human body in midair.
