This is not a souvenir book with pretty pictures of swans in tutus and princes in tights; rather, it is a virtual gallery of kinetic sculpture. Members of our leading dance companies, including the San Francisco Ballet, American Ballet Theater, New York City Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Paul Taylor Dance Company, and others worked with the photographer to capture the very essence of the art of dance. Schatz, whose previous titles range from Water Dance (Graphis, 1995) to Homeless: Portraits of Americans in Hard Times (Chronicle, 1993), explains that the "images in this book are not dance photographs; they are photographs of dancers who performed for an exact moment?for the camera alone.... We collaborated to create the `performances' that resulted in the photographs." An exquisite collection of stunning images well suited for photography, dance, and performing arts collections.?Carolyn M. Mulac, Chicago P.L.
