From 1981 through the early 2000's I photographed the Washington Ballet at many of their dress rehearsals. Mary Day used my photographs of the company and individual dancers for publication in magazines and their newsletters. Most of the photographs shown here are from the 1980's, (i.e., pre-digital) so I was using 35mm Kodak Tri-X Black & White film (ISO 400, push processed to 1600).
In 1996 I had aretrospecive exhibit of 50 of my Washington ballet images, held at the Valparaiso University (Valparaiso, Indiana). The director of the University Art Museum, Dr. Richard Brauer, selected four of the images to be added to their permanent collection.
