As you know, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival recently announced four dance companies performing at the festival next summer 2015: Martha Graham Dance Company, Michelle Dorrance / Dorrance Dance, Jessica Lang Dance and New York Theatre Ballet.
I have photographed three of these dance companies at the festival in past years, and I’m looking forward to photographing more dance next summer.
Photographing Martha Graham Dance Company
Martha Graham Dance Company was so fantastic at Jacob’s Pillow in 2013. They’re just such incredible artists with such incredible bodies, and the choreography by Graham is so full of drama and emotion. They really took us on a roller coaster ride. I was also able to make portraits around Jacob’s Pillow with Tadej Brdnik, a dancer with the Company. He was a volunteer model for the Dance Photography Workshop.
