Lois Greenfield and Dance Photography

The first time I saw Lois Greenfield’s photography was at a dance studio where someone had pasted a downloaded grainy image of a visual that burned itself in all its reproduced beauty onto my retina. It was a of Sam Mosher – the man in motion is synonymous for modern dance and his collaboration with Lois Greenfield and the camera lens is a synonym for “magic”. The photographs that resulted from Greenfield’s passion for the dancers as her muse since the 60s, resulted in a visual body of work that is iconic and fantastical. Here are some from the ocean of Greenfield-ian  creativity, expression and exploration. Where movement meets stillness, rhythm meets light and the dancers body meets a witness, one that alters perception, creates added dimensions and often lies. This unique relationship has me fascinated, questioning and in awe!
