A Washington, DC Treasure

When we did our research, we discovered that there were no visible Black photographers with photographic publications of notable Black-managed/operated U.S. dance companies. Dog Bark Media is proud to bring the work of local dance visionary, choreographer, and photographer Shawn Short into a published collection. 

“It’s even more important, now than ever, to tell the stories of African-Americans who are making a difference in our communities. I want to thank Dog Bark Media, for making this possible. This is only the first of many to come!” – Shawn Short, MFA
