Review quote

Extraordinary photographs of dancers in flight... As a dance photographer, Greenfield is not concerned with choreography or characters. She's looking for the expressive potential of the dancer's body buzzing on freedom.... Greenfield coaxes from them a seductive balance of wildness and calm. Their bodies float, swim, dive and spiral, but their facial expressions are composed and introspective. In the most intriguing, secretive pictures, it's as if we're watching the dancers dream. We're seeing that moment when the dream whips them around and spins right out of them, and in our minds, perhaps, we catch a little of how that feels. - Washington Post
