Overview

The only collection of photographs documenting the last three decades of Mikhail Baryshnikov's brilliant career.

Universally acknowledged as the most celebrated artist in the dance world (Time magazine proclaimed him 'the greatest living dancer') Mikhail Baryshnikov's defection from the Soviet Union in 1974, at the age of twenty-six, breathed new artistic freedom into an already astonishing career. Working with American Ballet Theatre (where he was Artistic Director for ten years), the New York City Ballet (with George Ballanchine), and finally forming his own company in 1990 with Mark Morris, White Oak Dance Project, Baryshnikov has, over these past decades, changed the face of dance.

Baryshnikov in Black and White presents, in over 175 photographs, the remarkable breadth of his achievement between the years 1974 and 2000. From his legendary roles in the classic ballets Giselle and Don Quixote, to his work with some of the world's greatest contemporary choreographers, Baryshnikov is shown here in both rehearsal and performance. Captured by the leading dance photographers, his vitality and genius are evident on every page. With an inspired and richly detailed essay by the New Yorker dance critic (and Baryshnikov biographer) Joan Acocella, a complete chronology of his roles, and extensive annotated captions, Baryshnikov in Black and White is the definitive book on his remarkable career in the West.

    the photos were beautiful

    I really enjoyed looking at these photos, which truly were extraordinary. I had expected more text on Baryshnikov himself (there are only two essays) though.

    Wonderful and Breathtaking

    I recently had the privilege to look through Baryshnikov: In Black and White, and I was taken aback by the photographs within it. I am a dancer myself, and I find such beauty behind each photo. Knowing the technicalities of each step gives me an even greater appreciation of Baryshnikov's talents. Even without a ballet background, one would still be able to appreciate the grace and beauty behind each photo. Photographing dance is one of the hardest things to accomplish when the subject is constantly moving. Each photographer did an outstanding job capturing the art of dance. I highly recommend this book for dancers, photography lovers, or anyone who appreciates the beauty of the human form.
