Martha Graham... One of the great pioneers of Modern Dance
Poesie in Licht und Schatten von Vadim Stein
Martha Graham (May 11, 1894 – April 1, 1991) was an American modern dancer and choreographer whose influence on dance has been compared with the influence Picasso had on modern visual arts, Stravinsky had on music, or Frank Lloyd Wright had on architecture. She danced and choreographed for over seventy years. Photo was taken by Imogen Cunningham in 1931.
Martha Graham is a perfect example of somebody who worked hard, and it paid off. She is truly and inspiration.
