'This book documents one of the most remarkable stories in late twentieth-century dance: the vastness, the sheer, scaling ambition, of the repertory that Mikhail Baryshnikov undertook once he defected to the West.' - Joan Acocella. "Baryshnikov: In Black In White" is a stunning book of photographs of one of the great dancers of the 20th century.
Taken by leading dance photographers, here are over 170 chronologically ordered photographs that chart Baryshnikov's evolution and capture his legendary athleticism, energy and charisma.
Stunningly designed, with an introduction by his biographer and the New Yorker dance critic Joan Acocella, "Baryshnikov: In Black In White" is the definitive visual companion to Baryshnikov's extraordinary career.
