About the Photographer Costas The instigator and photographer of Dancing Men, is from the Greek island of Chios. Studying in the United States at Wagner College on New York s Staten Island, at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island he focused on math and physics. His thesis topic concerned the classical Greek philosophers concepts of energy conservation. When dance photography began to intrigue him and choreographer George Balanchine invited him to rehearsals, Costas began to see that there were instants that captured essential elements in dance. To photograph them he learned to operate his camera with the needed speed and to anticipate the right moments almost instinctively. The resulting dance pictures have appeared in books, periodicals, film and television footage, on posters and covers and cards, and in gallery exhibitions around the world. Costas volume, Balanchine Celebrating a Life in Dance (Tide-mark, 2003) has gone through several editions. Together with writer Nancy Reynolds, Costas works on the annual Balanchine calendar, which features dancers of the New York City Ballet. Costas lives in New York City. This remarkable collection of male dancers ranges across four decades and pictures some 50 notable performers in more than 100 images captured through the lens of one of America s foremost dance photographers.
