Bill Dane

Also seen at the "Exposed" exhibition at the Tate Modern, this late 70s/early 80s picture by Bill Dane is not a fashion photograph but it's every bit as good as that other non-fashion photograph, "Satiric Dancer" by Andre Kertesz.

Satiric Dancer by Andre Kertesz. 1927.

Malick Sidibe

A young couple dancing by Malick Sidibe. The gesture and the moment are just so sweet - their bare feet, the way their heads are almost touching, the formality of their clothes. It's a picture of people falling in love.
