Philip Trager: Faces
Год издания: 2005Количество страниц: 124
Book Description Faces evolved from Philip Trager's extensive work photographing dancers and builds on his successful 1992 book Dancers . Trager has collaborated with a variety of dancers and performance artists, including Kazuo Ohno, Amanda Miller of The Frankfurt Ballet, Mark Morris, Eiko and Koma, and dancers of the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perrault. Trager's intensive approach allows him to develop a personal relationship with his subjects that is clearly expressed throughout this new work. The photographs in Faces --isolated from dance movement--present an innovative kind of portraiture. Creating a kind of psychological theater, these startling and mysterious images are intensely emotional, provocative, and stunningly beautiful. Trager's photographs compel us to rethink the field of dance photography. Hardcover, 11 x 13 in./124 pgs / 48 tritones.
