Terri Gold photographs performances by the Martha Graham Dance Theatre

I was so happy to see and photograph the dress rehearsal of the spring season of The Martha Graham Dance Company.

“Throughout her career, Graham was fascinated by visionaries and prophets. In ”Spectre-1914,” Xin Ying is a prophet beholding appalling visions of war as she rises tall and awesome in a black robe. She then manipulated the robe to show its reverse side, making her seem encased in a blood-red shroud.” -Jack Anderson

In my infrared interpretation the robe is white and blue…

Performed by Xin Ying.

 

“In “Embattled Garden,” from 1958, Graham—a lover of myth—tackled the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. (The garden is represented by a field of reeds, designed by Isamu Noguchi). ” -from a New Yorker Review

Performed by So Young An, Lloyd Mayor, Natasha Diamond-Walker, Abdiel Jacobsen.

Happy to have 2 of my images of Kushti Wrestlers in the auction this summer !

Claiming the title of “visual anthropologist,” photographer Terri Gold is celebrated for her infrared portraiture of indigenous cultures and ritual. Influenced by early explorers-turned-photographers, Gold takes her cameras through deserts and remote villages, capturing the diversity that the world has to offer. Her prints of the Kushti Wrestlers from Rajasthan tell the story of this ancient form of wrestling practiced in India for more than 2,000 years. Gold’s work has garnered many awards, is shown in galleries internationally and published extensively.

The Mermaid Parade

“I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.” – Anais Nin

A sea of Mermaids, Mermen and Sea Creatures  filled  Coney Island Saturday for the 34th annual Mermaid Parade.

The Parade celebrates the sand, the sea, the salt air and the beginning of summer, as well as the history and myths of Coney Island.  In hand-made costumes, everyone promenades, sashays and struts riotously down Surf  Avenue. It’s an all inclusive affair with participants from infants to octogenarians.  It’s part-fantasy, part-escapism, but all real –  celebrating  the imagination and  combining all the eccentricities and joys of artistic self-expression !

The Parade is the largest art parade in the nation and I love it and never miss it if I am in NYC.mermaidparade_2016C-515 mermaidparade_2016C-547 mermaidparade_2016C-563mermaidparade_2016C-478 mermaidparade_2016C-482 mermaidparade_2016C-502 mermaidparade_2016C-531 mermaidparade_2016C-536
