About this title


It isn't enough to say that Howard Schatz admires dancers. He adores them. Schatz' pictures are not about dance; they are photographs of dancers as phenomenal objects: graceful and powerful; explosive or ecstatic in motion, elegant and elemental while at rest. There is more to dance than bodies, but without bodies there is no dance. And however much natural beauty a dancer may have, years of training and a daily regimen that might break an Olympic rower, produce human forms that are nothing less than masterpieces of kinetic sculpture.
In Passion & Lies, Schatz interprets these hard-won creations through his art, combining exploration and adoration in equal measure.

From Library Journal:

This is not a souvenir book with pretty pictures of swans in tutus and princes in tights; rather, it is a virtual gallery of kinetic sculpture. Members of our leading dance companies, including the San Francisco Ballet, American Ballet Theater, New York City Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Paul Taylor Dance Company, and others worked with the photographer to capture the very essence of the art of dance. Schatz, whose previous titles range from Water Dance (Graphis, 1995) to Homeless: Portraits of Americans in Hard Times (Chronicle, 1993), explains that the "images in this book are not dance photographs; they are photographs of dancers who performed for an exact moment?for the camera alone.... We collaborated to create the `performances' that resulted in the photographs." An exquisite collection of stunning images well suited for photography, dance, and performing arts collections.?Carolyn M. Mulac, Chicago P.L.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
