Photography collides with dance in a stunning collection of 87 gravity-defying duotone images by Greenfield, a dance photographer for The Village Voice . Not content to be "handmaiden to the dance," Greenfield choreographs for the camera and employs the collaborative and improvisational powers of gifted contemporary dancers, primarily David Parsons, Daniel Ezralow, and Ashley Roland. Emphasizing soaring jumps and athletic flight, these images illustrate the paradox of still photography capturing motion. Ewing, editor of the more eclectic Dance and Photography ( LJ 3/1/88), provides an introduction and a technically illuminating interview with Greenfield, who explains her artistic development and use of the Hasselbad camera. Recommended for both photography and dance collections.
