Dances through Glass

by Polly Norman

This retrospective of the artist and photographer's work shows the development of her unique technique of photographing through glass block then painting the images. She chose the images and arranged them in three dances. She says, "Dance allows us to see music." I picked up her color palette to compliment the art and introduce each new section.

She is currently a winner for an international Eric Hoffer award; and the winner of four categories in the Midwest Book Awards, including the best total book design.
