On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the New York City Ballet, Paul Kolnik has selected a number of his most iconic images of the company, illuminating his unique artistic perspective. For this Works & Process dance conversation moderated by Linda Murray, Kolnik speaks with NYCB’s Artistic Associate Director, Wendy Whelan.
For five decades, photographer Paul Kolnik has been an intimate collaborator with George Balanchine’s New York City Ballet. His images have captured and become a significant part of the visual iconography of the company, allowing us to experience both the ephemeral nature of the dance and the timelessness of a photograph.
