Greenfield photo

As sinuous as a rococo nymph, dancer Natalie Johnson is caught mid-step — framed by loose swirls of mosquito netting — in “Lois Greenfield: Moving Still,” the latest book of dance photography by Greenfield ’70, published in November by Chronicle Books. Greenfield captures her exquisite shots with a stripped-down camera and no digital manipulation. The image depends purely on knowing when to snap the shutter. “In my photographs, time is stopped, a split second becomes an eternity, and an ephemeral moment is solid as sculpture,” Greenfield says.
