Series IV: Photographs, undated

This series is divided into two sub-series. The first sub-series includes photographs of Amata Grassi's personal life, and the second photographs of her dancing career.

Subseries 1: Personal Photographs, undated


1 box, 6 folders
Arrangement: Alphabetical
This sub-series contains photographs of Amata Grassi's friends and family, of herself with friends and family, and with herself with dogs. The sub-series also includes two files of travel photographs, from Latin America and of various and unidentified locations. It is likely that many of these photographs were taken during tours, but they do not contain images strictly related to her performances. Negatives and a few slides of some prints included in the sub-series can also be found here.
