George Pickow (1922-2010)

This unusual photograph of Pamela Green, on stage at the Players Theatre in Charing Cross, is by the well-known America photographer (and film-maker) George Pickow. He attached small pencil torches to Pamela’s hands and feet and using a strobe light and an open shutter he was able recorded trails of light as Pamela performed a number of dance movements. Not sure if this has ever been published before. It’s a bit of a treat. Excuse the bad scan. The print I had is rather small.

George Pickow became famous for chronicling folk and jazz music scenes on both sides of the Atlantic. He died at the age of 88 in 2010. You can read his obituary online at the Guardian.
