Publisher's Description

Lois Greenfield’s unique approach to photographing the human form in motion has redefined the genre of dance photography and transcended its limitations. Rather than shooting literal moments from a dance, Greenfield captures split-second movements created specifically for her camera. Her astonishing images of dancers in mid-flight appear to defy all laws of physics, with her performers seeming to levitate and assume incredible sculptural forms.

Moving Still charts Greenfield’s shift to colour photography and from shooting with a film camera to a digital camera. It also illustrates the evolution of her individual style pioneered in her previous books, Breaking Bounds and Airborne.

Greenfield herself, through commentaries on the photographs, offers fascinating insights into her creative process behind the camera and the challenges she faces in shooting these images. The result is an absorbing journey through Greenfield’s work that celebrates not only contemporary dance, but also the transformative power of photography. William A. Ewing contributes an interview with the photographer about her work, as well as an introduction.
