Barbara Morgan reveals in her own delightful stories why movement and the dance of Martha Graham became such important subjects in her photography. "When I read from the Chinese Six Canons of Painting, about 'rhythmic vitality' -- or essence of life force -- as being the artist's goal of expression, this seemed entirely natural, for it was related to my father's teaching about 'dancing atoms.' Thus the poetic mysticism of the East and the pragmatic dynamics of the West were brought into resonance..." - Barbara Morgan "How wonderful to behold a person who has developed all capacities because her practice of living as a whole being. A special significance belongs to her code phrase, 'total living.' This includes the knowledge and acceptance of the ensuing conflicts into harmony... Authority to speak on both painting and photography have been established by Barbara Morgan's images in both media." - Minor White
