Acquired by the Music Division in 2001 by purchase from a friend of the photographer, these photographs of modern dance pioneer Martha Graham were created at the same time the photographer's husband, Simon Moselsio, was shooting a documentary film on Graham's piece "Lamentation." Both images of the dancer were shot in Bennington, Vermont, at Bennington College during Graham's summer residency there.
