Publisher: Steidl, 2005
Hardcover, 124 pages

This project evolved from Philip Trager’s extensive work photographing dancers and builds on his successful 1992 book Dancers. He 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 here — isolated from dance movement — present an innovative kind of portraiture. Creating a kind of psychological theatre, these startling and mysterious images are intensely emotional, provocative, and stunningly beautiful. Trager’s photographs compel us to rethink the field of dance photography.
