"NYC Dance Project present a compendium of their visually striking photographs. The hundreds of images in this volume defy the static limitations of the page with brilliant dynamism in a breathtaking homage to the art and beauty of the human form."--Harper's Bazaar "Ken Browar and Deborah Ory's breathtaking dance photography captures both the stillness of a single instant and the vitality of movement. Their portfolio was the highlight of our March 2016 issue recreation of Edgar Degas's masterworks, featuring Misty Copeland, and their oeuvre doesn't end there. Bravo, Ken and Deobrah, on a stunning and visceral body of work."--Glenda Bailey, editor-in-chief, Harper's Bazaar "In the book The Art of Movement, Ken Browar and Deborah Ory of NYC Dance Project capture some of the most accomplished dancers in the world in a series of striking poses.

Precioso como regalo Lo compré como regalo para una chica que ha hecho ballet durante años, y le ha encantado. Es un libro grande y con muchísimas ilustraciones, precioso tanto para amantes del ballet como para amantes de la fotografía y del arte en general. El libro está en inglés, pero siendo un libro compuesto principalmente por fotografías no es algo que me parezca relevante de cara a su adquisición.
The art of movement El libro es simplemente maravilloso. Es la primera vez que compro en Amazon y aunque el libro tardo un poco en llegar, tenían que enviarlo desde los Estados Unidos, estoy encantada. La fotografía es perfecta, los bailarines y bailarinas al igual que el vestuario es simplemente maravilloso. Muchas gracias y feliz año nuevo Amaia
INCREIBLE Pura belleza, e inspiración, encuadernación de lujo, una gran adquisición para mi biblioteca de arte. Me encanta de principio a fin.
Buen precio El libro es una maravilla
Es un libro excelente!!! Un deleite cada página
Masterpiece of dance photograpy, but unfortunately damaged due to poor wrapping. This is a masterpiece of dance photography. My only complaint is that given the type of book I would have expected a better wrapping/box. The book was slightly damaged. Next time I spend this much money for a book it will be in a normal book shop where I can see the state of the book before I buy it.
What a beautiful book... For art lovers this is a beautiful book using quality paper.
Beautiful Book Beautiful book of dance images. I bought this from the perspective of a photographer and was very impressed with all of the images in the book.
Mottled grey and plié! Beautiful photographs but lacks variety as a good proportion of the photos are taken against the same large mottled grey background. It’s obviously the photographers style but feels formulaic. Not as inspirational as I was hoping.
Wonderful book depicting grace and movement This is a wonderful book illustrating grace and movement. The photography is lovely showing the fluidity and skill of the dancers.
