A celebration of contemporary dance, this text features work from photographers around the world. The images of dancers, choreographers and performance artists were conceived as "duets" between artist and photographer, forming a dialogue. A series of essays on five key choreographers who have shaped contemporary dance - Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor, Twyla Tharp, Trisha Brown and Mark Morris - lend insight into the distinctive style and personality of each artist. The book is the culmination of the award-winning magazine "Dance Ink", an avant-garde production which attracted a cult following in its years in print (1990-1996) due to its innovative design and approach to dance photography.
