Photographs by Hal Eastman.
Foreword by Janice Ross.
The photographs in Natural Dance celebrate the freedom, energy and power of women dancers as they spontaneously explore their personal inner sense of movement in intuitive harmony with the natural beauty around them. At the same time, these extraordinary images capture the liberating spirit of dance and the dance rhythms that permeate the natural world. Created by an unusual time-lapse photographic technique, the images evoke late 19th and early 20th century prints. Quotes about dance in nature from famous current and historical dance personalities provide context for the images.
