Lois Greenfield is known for her stunning images of dancers in flight, caught in seemingly impossible configurations. Over the span of her 40-year career, she has redefined the genre of dance and movement photography and influenced a generation of photographers.
Lois takes you behind the scenes of her third book “Lois Greenfield: Moving Still,” (Chronicle Books US, and Thames and Hudson UK) which showcases her creative output over the last 2 decades, and includes her newest work in color.
She shares with you her surprisingly simple artistic and technical methods – from her creative concepts to her lighting and equipment set up.
Lois will describe how she directs the dancers to create her stunning, in-camera configurations of bodies in motion, without the benefit of Photoshop.
She will discuss the trajectory of her career, from photojournalism to dance photography, and how she has managed to maintain her artistic integrity while working within the editorial, commercial, stock, and merchandising photography market.
Lois will be available after the presentation to sign copies of “Lois Greenfield: Moving Still.”
