'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.

From the moment of his first, spectacular North American appearance--in 1974, at the age of 26--Mikhail Baryshnikov was viewed as one of ballet's great virtuosos. But few could guess that his experimental spirit would lead him from princely roles in the classics to trailblazing collaborations with modern dance choreographers. Baryshnikov in Black and White reveals key moments of the dancer's artistic evolution from 1974 to 2000 in more than 175 starkly expressive black-and-white photographs. Glimpses of performances with American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and the White Oak Dance Project join a few well-chosen studio rehearsal shots. They demonstrate Baryshnikov's enormous range, from the classical purity of Apollo to the improvisational HeartBeat: mb, from partnering Natalia Makarova to partnering a folding chair. Joan Acocella's introduction deftly and authoritatively sketches the dancer's career. Unfortunately, Robert Greskovic's annotated captions are segregated from the photos, requiring constant paging back and forth. --Cathy CurtisFrom the Publisher:
Baryshnikov in Black and White presents, in over 175 photographs, the remarkable breadth of his achievement between the years 1974 and 2000. From his legendary roles in the classic ballets Giselle and Don Quixote, to his work with some of the world's greatest contemporary choreographers, Baryshnikov is shown here in both rehearsal and performance. Captured by the leading dance photographers, his vitality and genius are evident on every page. With an inspired and richly detailed essay by the New Yorker dance critic (and Baryshnikov biographer) Joan Acocella, a complete chronology of his roles, and extensive annotated captions, Baryshnikov in Black and White is the definitive book on his remarkable career in the West.
