#CamerasAndDancers Visits the Library for the Performing Arts


A large group of photographers and dancers recently descended upon The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts early one morning for a one-of-a-kind photography event: #CamerasAndDancers. Dancers from the Parsons Dance Company and the Paul Taylor Dance Company joined Jacob Jonas the Company, social influencer and photograper Dave Krugman, and a group of photographers and Instagrammers to put their own unique spin on the spaces in and around LPA.

With the social media initiative #CamerasAndDancers, Jacob Jonas seeks to encourage collaboration and exploration through the mediums of dance and photography, to help shine a new light on the world of dance. Before the photoshoot, Jacob Jonas, Dave Krugman, and Curator of the Jerome Robbins Dance Division Linda Murray chatted about the project, and gave a behind-the-scenes look at the archival photoshoot:

Below are a few highlights from the #CamerasAndDancers photoshoot, which utilized the spaces and natural light inside and around the Library.







Thank you to all of the photographers and dancers involved for bringing so much creativity to the spaces of the Library for the Performing Arts!
