He joined The Martha Graham Dance Company after she saw the 22 year old who had won a dance scholarship to American Dance Festival. He had no training however, his athletic build and way of movement caught her eye. With The Martha Graham Dance Company he had seven seasons as a soloist and continued his work for his own company. Some great roles he danced in with the Martha Graham Dance Company include : Aegisthus in Altyemnesta in 1958, Hercules in Alcestics in 1960, Thesues in Phaedra in 1962. He was invited to the New York City Ballet where George Balanchine created a solo for him.
Obviously photography is a complex form of expression and the goal seems to be to derive the basic properties of photography in the simplest terms possible. However, he states that it should be clear to the reader that the concept need not actually exist and that if he makes claims that seem “exaggerated or false” we should not be put-off. To me this feels like a cop out. It is not made clear, to me at least, where exactly the connection between a fictional concept and reality occurs. Scruton argues that when we take an interest in photographs, is actually an interest in the actual objects that were photographed rather than the photographs themselves.
He continued his training in New York at the Harkness School of Ballet, Alvin Ailey Dance School, and then the American Ballet Theatre School and School of American Ballet as a scholarship student. After his training he apprenticed at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and performed with a number of companies, many of which were from Europe. Shortly after, he returned to California where he began his LINES Ballet Company in San Francisco, California. King introduced his first season in 1982 by reviving a piece “Maya”, which he originally choreographed and set on the South Coast Contemporary Dance Theatre. From that point on, the company continued its growth and creation of a fresh spin on an incredibly old technique.

As Fosse grew up, his talented dancing and signature showmanship had began molding his future career. While still a teenager, he performed with a partner as the Riff brothers in vaudeville and burlesque theaters. Before moving to New York and studying acting at the American Theatre Wing, Fosse finished High School in 1945 and had spent two years in the U.S Navy. He also made extra money tapping in burlesque halls and strip clubs, where he was exposed to provocative gestures and poses of strippers. After moving to New York, Fosse landed his first Broadway job in the chorus of Call Me Mister (1948).
The first of these, the style argument, as articulated by King, states that the “purely abstract features of a photograph” regularly appear to evoke aesthetic interest in an audience (King, 1992, 260). King thus suggests that Scruton’s argument undermines the stylistic choices which a photographer autonomously makes; it is possible to seek to engage with a photograph merely in virtue of its photographic surface, by perceiving features such as its luminosity or contrast, for example. Such appreciation is not dependent upon one having an interest in the subject photographed (King, 1992, 264). For instance, when one marvels over Ansel Adams’ photograph of a road she is aesthetically interested in the photographer’s miraculous ability to create contrast, rather than the road, and hence the photograph does more than merely act as an instrument for seeing-through to the scene (King, 1992, 264). As such, the photographer makes artistic decisions in the same way that a painter might, and these are demonstrated in the stylistic elements of the photographic surface.

Gombrich said of photography: ‘It has drawn attention to the paradox of capturing life in a still, of freezing the play of features in an arrested moment of which we may never be aware in the flux of events.’ Along this train of thought, one can see that photography helped artists achieve something other pictorial media could not. An example of this use of photography can be seen in photorealist artist, Chuck Close. Close’s works are paintings of photographs much more than paintings of the people themselves. He relied on creating an exact copy of the photograph to compose his pictures, including details such as the slightly out ... ... middle of paper ... ...istory 1839-1900 Cambridge University Press (1997) J.Friday Aesthetics and Photography Ashgate (2002) J.

In this way the wax is not just a set of physical properties that our senses take in, it is the wax itself. Baker states, “Sensory perceptions are simply a way that the body of wax presented itself to us.” (Baker). Baker takes the stance that the properties of the wax are just our sensory experience of it. However to recognize that the wax as a constant in each state, one has to consider the wax itself without taking into account the qualities the senses experience. Accordingly as the nature of the wax cannot be perceived by the senses, and that rationalism is essential in order to understand the nature of the wax.
