The Dancer as the
Invisible Girl
1 Dancer + 1 Comic Book +
1 Photographer

Exhibition prints and photo/comic book available for purchase (see below).

The Dancer as the Invisible Girl is a photo/comic book and a series of 20x30-inch prints; some are shown here.

In this comic, I placed images of a dancer into a Marvel Fantastic Four comic book, highlighting the way both comics and photography can freeze gesture and motion, cram things into a frame, cut the body off mid-limb, and explore odd perspective.

I retain the very simple narrative, but the two incarnations of the central character (Susan Richards and superhero Invisible Girl) gain a third identity: the Dancer (played by dancer and choreographer Nicole Pierce). The comic’s Fan Page explores more fully the relationship between photography, comics, and dance.

Exhibition prints (20x30") are available for purchase (editions of 7); contact Ellen.

To see all pages of the photo/comic book, or to purchase a copy, go to MagCloud.
