Dance Index

The journal Dance Index was founded by Lincoln Kirstein in 1942. Over the following seven years, 56 issues were published, presenting original scholarship on a wide range of dance subjects. In the spirit of its predecessor, the new Dance Index examines the multi-dimensional richness and diversity of the world of dance. Its intention is to surprise and excite a general audience with a new level of understanding and appreciation of the real and critical importance of dance in contemporary culture.

In this new issue of Dance Index the complex and interdependent relationship between dance and photography is explored in a deeply informed essay by writer and photographer Jerry L. Thompson. Some of his examples show photography as a means of dance documentation; others use dance as a subject matter with which to explore the photographic medium and its technical capacities. The approach to photography discussed in these pages fits into a mutually synergistic place, where the resulting images do something that is greater than the sum of the parts at play.
