From Baryshnikov to Mark Morris to Alvin Ailey – Nan Melville’s ‘Dance Unframed’ Exhibition Captures Fleeting Moments in Time

By Jitin Hingorani, February 10, 2011

“I have seen few exhibits in the general art world that concentrate only on dance. Nan has an exquisite eye and talent with her camera for capturing that moment in which the dancer leaves the earth and transcends into a higher state.  Each photograph tells a story in itself, yet is part of the greater story of the dance. Nan has been fortunate to photograph many of the greatest dancers in the world, and they are fortunate she has been there to capture their moments of perfection to preserve for the world.”

Nan Melville’s Photography Exhibit – Dance Unframed

“That is just one image. There were plenty of others worth pondering. If an image or two so strikes your fancy that you get carried away and buy a signed print, your wall will thank you.”
