Jack Mitchell (1925-2013) was an American photographer who was renowned for his captivating photographs of visual artists, film and theater personalities, musicians, and writers, which he documented during an amazing career! Mitchell’s photographs of creative and performing artists have graced the covers and pages of Harper’s Bazaar, Life, Newsweek, People, Rolling Stone, Time, Vanity Fair, Vogue and The New York Times.

He was an expert in lighting and worked mostly in black and white.

His love for dance was captured in his photographs of posing dancers – he encouraged them to leap, to stretch, and to point their feet, resulted in images that epitomize the joyful physicality of dance. He was the official photographer for the American Ballet Theater.

“He pulled the uniqueness out of you regardless of whether you wanted it pulled out of you or not. I look at myself growing up in his pictures.” said the legendary dancer and choreographer Judith Jamison.
