“A Vibrant Career at the Ballet, but With a Lens and Not Toeshoes” An article on Herbert Migdoll 

Joffrey Ballet: Mavericks of American Dance

Dance on Camera is accompanied by a colorful photo exhibit in the Freida and Roy Furman Gallery by Herbert Migdoll, painter and official photographer for the Joffrey Ballet. The exhibit highlights “Joffrey’s Carousel: Celebrating 50 Years of Dance,” a photographic parade of Joffrey’s dancers in costume, representing the company’s classical and contemporary repertory.  The multiple images on panels were shot in 1996 at Chicago’s Navy Pier’s famed outdoor carousel. Excerpts from the article…
“I feel that my work now for the company is more as a fine artist,” Mr. Migdoll said. “But it didn’t start out that way.”
From the Joffrey’s experimental beginnings in New York City to its relocation to Chicago in 1995, Mr. Migdoll has been with the company longer than any other employee, working under Joffrey, Arpino and now, Ashley Wheater.
“To say that we have a photographer on staff is not accurate,” said Christopher Clinton Conway, the Joffrey’s executive director. “To say we have an artist on staff is not accurate. He is so much more than all those things.”
Read more on Herbert Migdoll, “the last link between the company’s past and present” in the article!
