Hide Profile

Robert Alexander was born in 1943 in New York. He was a photographer closely connected with performance art and experimental dance during the late seventies and early eighties, and worked with choreographers such as Douglass Dunn, Simone Forti, and Yvonne Rainer. His photographs of dance and theater performances appeared regularly in the Soho Weekly News in 1978 and 1979. He collaborated with the dance critic and writer Sally Banes on the book Terpsichore in Sneakers, which remains a standard text of postmodern dance. Alexander was also a keen observer and documenter of the city in which he spent all his life.
