Push Comes to Shove by Max Waldman

The photograph “Push Comes to Shove” was taken by artist Max Waldman and features the performer Mikhail Baryshnikov. The black and white photo depicts Baryshnikov in a dynamic pose, capturing the intensity and movement associated with his dance performance.

In the photograph, Mikhail Baryshnikov is shown in a dramatic, mid-action stance. He is dressed in a cowboy-inspired outfit, complete with a hat, a long-sleeved shirt with a distinctive pattern, a belt, and what appear to be jeans. Baryshnikov’s pose suggests powerful, controlled movement, with one arm bent and raised toward his face and the other extended back with a clenched fist. His gaze is not visible under the brim of the hat, adding to the intrigue of the moment captured. The lighting and monochromatic tone emphasize the textures of his clothing and the strength of his posture, making the image visually captivating and filled with the tension of an implied narrative.
