Faces evolved from Philip Tragerís 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. Tragerís 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. Tragerís photographs compel us to rethink the field of dance photography.
