Photography at Jacob’s Pillow

The Pillow has nurtured rich and fruitful relationships with dance photographers for over eight decades, beginning in the 1930s with John Lindquist and continuing with John Van Lund in the 1940s and Jack Mitchell in the 1950s. The Archives at Jacob’s Pillow houses tens of thousands of dance photos and negatives, including images by George Platt Lynes, Edward Weston, Barbara Morgan, and George Hoyningen-Huene. Annual exhibits showcase and give insight into dance and dance photography, and leading photographers including Annie Leibovitz, Philip Trager, and Lois Greenfield have discussed their work in public talks. In recent years, many renowned photographers have shot at the Pillow, including Rose Eichenbaum, Mike Van Sleen, Christopher Duggan, Jordan Matter and Toby Old.
