flight of fancy

June 11, 2020

It wasn’t until the late 1920s that technologies in dance photography evolved to allow photographers to capture their subjects in flight. Charlotte Rudolph‘s images of a leaping Gret Palucca advanced both women’s careers, lifting Palucca to international fame, and landing Rudolph centre stage in her field. I love so many of Rudolph’s images, but this one in particular, with none of the tidiness and finesse we associate with dancers, is my favourite.
