Philip Trager (1935 - Present)
Active as a photographer for more than forty years, Philip Trager is a preeminent photographer of dance and architecture. His photographs of contemporary dancers and performance artists have expanded the genre of dance photography. His book, The Villas of Palladio, has become a standard document for architects and architectural historians. His most recent books are Philip Trager, a retrospective book, and Faces, both published by Steidl.

Trager’s photographs are in international private, corporate and institutional collections. In New York, they are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of the City of New York, New York Historical Society, and the New York Public Library (which recently acquired eighty photographs). The Library of Congress has acquired the definitive collection of his photographs and will house his archive as part of its core collections.
