Michelle Dorrance is a killer performer, a skilled musician and brings positive energy to every space she presents work. It was a joy seeing her several times this summer, in several gorgeous performing arts venues – Vail International Dance Festival & Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival.
It’s been a busy summer, but I still was able to find time to make some creative portraits with some of the artists at Jacob’s Pillow.
For the first time ever, I’ve done collaborative shoots with the Jacob’s Pillow Dance photography intern. We just did back-to-back photo shoots with the contemporary dancers of The School.
For me, free performances under the blue sky and against the Berkshire hills is the definition of summertime. Enjoying the outdoors. Having a great time with family and friends. Watching gorgeous dance against a breathtaking backdrop. It’s everything.
Everyone has seen Lois Greenfield’s images. She is the master of dance photography as far as I’m concerned, and I think most people would agree. She’s a legend. I’ve seen her work forever and have always loved everything she has created. This summer, Nel and I visited her studio to make a video of her work to accompany her “Moving Still” exhibit at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival. She was warm and welcoming.
