Description

A collection of photographic portraits and vignettes based on intimate conversations, Masters of Movement takes us on a journey into the world of dance, from the concert stage and Broadway to feature films and music videos. We meet the principal disciples of such giants as Martha Graham, George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, and Alvin Ailey - unguarded and uncensored - in their living rooms, backstage, or sometimes in unexpected places. We are present as Eichenbaum photographs David Parsons, in a business suit, standing on the branch of a Central Park tree, or Anna Halprin lying naked at the base of a giant California redwood. Whether through her lens or through the revelations emanating from her masterful interviews, Eichenbaum has succeeded in capturing the essential character of her subjects, who have confided experiences and emotions that have driven their creativity and defined their styles.show more
