Dazzling. -- Vanity Fair
Extraordinary photographs of dancers in flight... As a dance photographer, Greenfield is not concerned with choreography or characters. She's looking for the expressive potential of the dancer's body buzzing on freedom.... Greenfield coaxes from them a seductive balance of wildness and calm. Their bodies float, swim, dive and spiral, but their facial expressions are composed and introspective. In the most intriguing, secretive pictures, it's as if we're watching the dancers dream. We're seeing that moment when the dream whips them around and spins right out of them, and in our minds, perhaps, we catch a little of how that feels. - Washington Post
Inspiring for their technical excellence, the framing and lighting, the choice of props, and the lithe dancers, these high-quality, large-format photos combine with an elegant layout to create a beautiful book. The artistic use of color, form, and movement in the photos can be appreciated by anyone; no dance background required. Greenfield's talent for knowing exactly when to click the shutter makes many of the pictures truly breathtaking. --Library Journal
