Christopher Jones has been photographing dance in both theatres and in his studio for over a decade, and has studied with leading dance photographers Rose Eichenbaum, Lois Greenfield, and Christopher Duggan.
His work has been featured in the Washington Post and Dance Magazine, and has been used extensively in promotional materials for the Martha Graham Dance Company, Jessica Lang Dance, the Limon Dance Company, Compania Irene Rodriguez amongst others, and in the personal portfolios of a number of leading modern dancers.
“I love dance… above all because it is such a visual, emotional and ephemeral art form, combining extraordinary grace and physicality with exceptional artistry, both individually and collectively. The intensity and beauty of the emotion of each moment in dance, that is often breathtaking or heartbreaking, is exquisite and gone in the blink of an eye. That was what led me to explore becoming a photographer – initially focused on capturing the emotion of those moments in the theatre, and from there creating portraits in my studio that are my own artistic creations, collaborating with these amazing artists” --- Christopher Jones
