photo: Franklin price knott, national GeoGraphic creative Motion Pictured pioneers of modern dance ruth St. Denis and ted Shawn pose for photographer Franklin price knott in this autochrome—an early color photo process— from the april 1916 Geographic. the dance pictured, the “Garden of kama,” was one of many india-influenced works by the pair, who married in 1914. their Denishawn School of Dancing and related arts in los angeles, california, counted choreographer Martha Graham and silent film actress louise Brooks as alumnae. knott must have liked the couple: two images of them appear in his portfolio of autochromes in that issue. his other colorful subjects include a cowboy, pumpkins, and tigers in a new York zoo. today national Geographic’s archive maintains nearly 15,000 glass-plate autochromes, one of the largest such collections in the world. — Margaret G.
