For more than 20 years Lois Greenfield has been dazzling the dance world with the spectacular imagery of modern and post-modern dance, and has created a photographic style which has in recent years spawned a host of imitators. Unlike the majority of dance photographers, who are confined to rehearsals and the stage, Greefield works in her studio, where she has a more complete control of her art. This book features Greenfield's new work, produced since 1992, and is her second book with William A. Ewing. Images show moments of actual dances, interpretations of a particular choreographer's style, or Greenfield's own "photochoreography" - movements and gestures made by the dancers to follow the photographer's directions. Finally, some are free-spirited collaborations in which both photographer and dancer work towards dynamic results.
Lois Greenfield is recognized internationally as one of the foremost photographers of dance. She is a regular contributor to the Village Voice, and her photographs have also appeared in Dance Ink, Esquire, Time, Wile, Vogue, Mirabella, and Zoom, among other magazines. Coinciding with the publication of Breaking Bounds, the International Center of Photography in New York will mount a major exhibition of her photography, which will then travel widely throughout the United States and Canada.
