Abstract

This chapter discusses the 11 Million Reasons photographic exhibition commissioned by People Dancing in the UK, which features dancers with disabilities reconstructing still images from 20 well-known films that highlight dance. Comments by the dancers are woven through the chapter to inform the discussion, which also looks to examples of iconic dance photography to ask a number of questions about what the images transmit, and the extent to which the exhibition elicits nostalgia in the viewer.
