Before its advent, the history of the art form was mediated through the highly coloured accounts of critics or the stylised images of painters. It was only after the very first, stiff experiments with daguerreotypes in the mid-19th century that we began to accumulate evidence of how dancers actually looked to their contemporaries.” Judith Mackrell • Guardian
