Editorial Reviews


"(Barbara Morgan's) photographs display an energy of both physical and psychic dimensions which clearly echo every aspect of her spirit and insight. The richness and physical scale of her photographs compel us to delve into their every recess and to become a participant in their vitality."--Peter Bunnell

About the Author

Barbara Morgan was born in 1900 in Buffalo, Kansas. Her early training in painting and printmaking at the University of California at Los Angeles lent her photography a dynamically graphic and expressionistic quality. Utilizing a wide range of experimental techniques, she constantly strove to portray the essential qualities of her subject matter--whether she was photographing dance, her children, nature, or the urban landscape. Her explorations with photomontage and light drawings were unique to the American photography of her time, and her documentation of American modern dance has left us with a vibrant legacy of an emergent dance form.
