I recently bought this book at an Ailey performance (and got it signed by Judith Jamison!!) and paid A LOT more for it – so get it on Amazon and save some $$$!

Very amazing dance photography book. The fact that there is a variety of portraits, action shots, and posed shots makes this book very well rounded.
