In my dreams
I have wings,
And eyes: burning flames,
I soar above everything
As the world stares in awe;
But while awake
I am fallen,
And my feet too small;
I blend in with the crowd,
There is nothing
Extraordinary about me at all.

This photograph of Albertina Rasch’s dancing troupe was taken by British-born Florence Vandamm, one of the most successful New York photographers of the time. Vandamm frequently captured on camera the lively spirit of the Jazz Age.
