A recently discovered trove of 40 photographs of the iconic modern dance legend Martha Graham is on display at Catamount Arts through the end of the month. Captured by photographer Robert Fraser at at the Guild Theater in New York City on December 19, 1937, the photographs had been lost in the thousands of negatives comprising his collection. Marianne Handy Hraibi, dance instructor at St. Johnsbury Academy, was approached by Robert Fraser's son Douglas, and recognized the value of the images, which have since been added to the Martha Graham Foundation archives. The collection was framed by Academy arts department chair Rosie Prevost. The Martha Graham Dance Company will perform in Burlington on Friday, November 21.
