The Essay, The Team Photo Episode 3 of 5

Eva Salzman reflects on the photograph of herself in a dance piece called Life of the Bee, created by Doris Humphrey, a pioneer of modern dance and based on a book by Maeterlinck.

Eva Salzman was born in 1960 in New York City, and grew up in Brooklyn where - from the age of 10 until 22 - she was a dancer and later a choreographer. She was educated at Bennington College and Columbia University, moving to Britain in 1985. Her books of poetry include Double Crossing: New and Selected Poems (Bloodaxe 2004), The English Earthquake (Bloodaxe 1992) and Bargain With The Watchman (Oxford University Press 1997).
