An Evening with Lois Greenfield – Nov 1st
Thursday, November 1st, 7:30 – 9:00 pm
***CANCELLED DUE TO HURRICANE SANDY***
The Julia Dean Photo Workshops, 755 Seward St, Los Angeles , CA 90038
In her exuberant and explosive pictures, Lois Greenfield (www.loisgreenfield.com) captures not just the lithe and acrobatic forms of dancers performing their art, but the purity and exhilaration of movement itself. Without tricks or manipulation of any kind, she catches these fleeting and impossible moments in a style that is both lyrical and graphic. Greenfield has been compared with Eadward Muybridge for his exploration of human locomotion, and with Cartier Bresson for capturing the elusive moment. Unlike her predecessors however, her images depict but don’t refer to the “real” world. They are documents of her imagination. Lois has created signature images for most of the major contemporary dance companies from Alvin Ailey to American Ballet Theater. Many of these images can be seen in magazines such as Elle, Vanity Fair, Times and GQ, as well as in her two best selling books, Breaking Bounds (Thames & Hudson 1992) and her second volume Airborne (1998). Her unique approach to photographing the human form in motion has radically redefined the genre, and influenced a generation of photographers.
