Item description for Philip Trager: Faces by Philip Trager...

Description: Faces evolved from Philip Trager's extensive work photographing dancers and builds on his successful 1992 book Dancers. Trager has collaborated with a variety of dancers and performance artists, including Kazuo Ohno, Amanda Miller of The Frankfurt Ballet, Mark Morris, Eiko and Koma, and dancers of the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perrault. Trager's intensive approach allows him to develop a personal relationship with his subjects that is clearly expressed throughout this new work. The photographs in Faces--isolated from dance movement--present an innovative kind of portraiture. Creating a kind of psychological theater, these startling and mysterious images are intensely emotional, provocative, and stunningly beautiful. Trager's photographs compel us to rethink the field of dance photography.

Reviews - What do customers think about Philip Trager: Faces?

Bravo, "Faces"  Jan 4, 2006
Philip Trager's new book is both a collection of beautiful photographs and a beautiful object in itself, as are all of Mr. Trager's books. This one is a natural extension of his earlier "Dancers" and brilliantly documents the drama that emanates from these wonderful artists who communicate through the grace and power of their bodies. His portraits of his wife moved also me deeply and unexpectedly. I wish Trager had had the chance to make portraits of Duse, or Isadora Duncan, or especially Chaplin.
Powerful & Amazing  Dec 19, 2005
"Faces" is a stunning book. The images are emotional and beautiful,
mysterious and theatrical. They are a new kind of portraiture,
capturing the "head" of the dancer as a portrait, while in the midst of
performance. Trager's work has been highly acclaimed by critics. This
book, I believe, is his best ever. The photographs are of dancers and
performance artists, including Mark Morris, Bill T. Jones and many
others. This large sized book is beautifully produced, with superb
reproductions and the highest quality paper and cloth.
Trager's Best Book Yet  Dec 17, 2005
Without a doubt. Trager is one of America's great photographers. I have been following his work for years and this is his most haunting and beautiful book. From whimsical to tragic these spellbinding photographic images stay with you long after the cover of the book is closed. And for those already familar with Trager's architectural photographs, often notable for the absence of people, this is a great oppotunity to see Trager's wonderful artistic eye applied to the structure of a human face. This is a high quality art book at a good price and would make an ideal gift for anyone who appreciates fine art.
