Series 2
Photographs, 1900-2017
Boxes 60 - 118

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of photographs from Geoffrey Holder and Carmen de Lavallade's professional and personal lives circa 1900-2017, including photographs of family, friends, rehearsals, and performances, as well as other events such as lectures, awards ceremonies, and weddings.

Photographs of Holder's family and friends include documentation of celebratory and casual gatherings, as well as portraits, with early photographs (1930-1952) depicting life in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. Lifelong collaborators, such as Scoogie Brown and Jacques Sigurd; childhood friends, such as Tommy Carr; parents, Louise and Arthur Holder; sisters, Jean and Marjorie; brother Boscoe Holder; and others are well-represented in the series.

Early Holder dance company photographs depict events, rehearsals, and portraits of dancers, including performances and gatherings at the Caribe Hilton Hotel (Puerto Rico). Some include captions, such as names of performers, written on the back. There are several portraits of performers and models taken by Holder circa 1940-1952. Some, such as Tropical Rhapsody, depict mythological scenes and include story-like descriptions written on the back. Later nude portraits by Holder were included in Holder's book Adam (1986).

Holder's music and dance events, lectures, and interviews, including performances of Instant Theater (circa 1970s) are included in this series. Performances Holder choreographed and/or directed, such as Danse Creole (Ballet Hispánico, undated), Dougla (Dance Theatre of Harlem, 1974), Timbuktu (1979), The Wiz (circa 1975-1979), Ballet, Ballads, the Blues and the Bible (circa 1982), Prodigal Prince (Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, circa 1958-2010), and instances of Banda (circa 1940s-1982) throughout Holder's career, are well-represented. Holder's costume designs can be seen in these works, as well as in Dance Theatre of Harlem's Firebird (circa 1982). Some of his designs are modeled throughout this series by de Lavallade, Léo Holder, and other models. There are several promotional photographs, behind-the-scenes images, set stills, and captions from film and television productions in which Holder acted.

There are several photographs of Holder's painting and drawings, as well as of people who modeled for Holder's paintings (sitters). Notable sitters were Lena Horne, Diahann Carroll, and Anthony Perkins. There are photographs of some of Holder's art exhibitions, including his first exhibition in New York at Barone Gallery and early exhibitions documented by Betty Statler.

Early photographs of Carmen de Lavallade's family include her father, Leo de Lavallade; mother, Grace Grenot de Lavallade; aunts, Angelique Bratton and Adele de Lavallade; cousin Janet Collins; sisters, Yvonne and Elaine de Lavallade; and others. Several photographs include Holder and de Lavallade's family at events and gatherings together, including some of de Lavallade, Jean and Marjorie on a beach.

De Lavallade's work as a dancer, choreographer, and actor is seen in candid photographs backstage, rehearsals, workshops with children, and performances. Early (circa 1950s) performances with Lester Horton such as Salome, Another Touch of Klee, Choreo '54 and The Beloved are well-documented. Her work with John Butler including performances of Cartulli Carmina (1967) and Portrait of Billie (circa 1960s-1992), as well as rehearsals, performances, and parties with the Butler dance company in Spoleto, Italy depict de Lavallade's relationships with other dancers, artists, and friends.

There are several negatives, prints, and slides of the de-Lavallade-Ailey American Dance Company on tour through Southeast Asia (1962) and some instances of de Lavallade and Alvin Ailey performing in Roots of the Blues (circa 1960s) and House of Flowers (1954). Yale Repertory Theater performances (circa 1960-1977) include A Midsummer Night's Dream (1975). There are some portraits of de Lavallade's solo work As I Remember It (circa 2007), as well as other lesser-known solo performances throughout her career. There are also photographs of her teaching engagements, seminars, and workshops, including events attended by Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater artistic director emerita, Judith Jamison.

Photographs of Holder and de Lavallade together include rehearsals and performances with Josephine Baker and in House of Flowers (1954). They are pictured together at awards ceremonies and other formal events, dinners, and parties, such as the Kennedy Center Honors (Washington, D.C.) and "Night of 100 Stars" (circa 1982-1985), where Holder took several portraits of notable figures and celebrities. Their 1955 wedding is also prominently featured with photographs by recurring collaborators Carl Van Vechten, Peter Basch, and Peter Fink. Many portraits of Holder, de Lavallade, and Léo at their New York home were taken by photographers Margot W. Astrachan, M.J. Dain, and others whose work occurs several times in this series.
