Loie Fuller by John Alexander White
Loie Fuller had no formal training and was an important modern dance pioneer. While performing she was intrigued by the special effects and would project images onto fabric by using calcium lights, drapery and magic lanterns
Fuller used dozens of metres of the silk fabric as her costumes, and would drape herself in beautiful shapes of butterflies and flowers. Her dances were lit against a black floor and background by colored electric lights.
