Merce Cunningham: Fifty Years incorporates images of performances and rehearsals, along with candid photographs by many important photographers, including Imogen Cunningham, Arnold Eagle, Peter Hujar, James Klosty, Annie Leibovitz, Barbara Morgan, and Max Waldman. The book also features examples of Cunningham's choreographic notes, as well as scores, and set and costume designs by the artists with whom he has collaborated over the years, including William Anastasi, Dove Bradshaw, John Cage, Morris Graves, Jasper Johns, Takehisa Kosugi, Mark Lancaster, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Isamu Noguchi, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, Marsha Skinner, Frank Stella, David Tudor, and Andy Warhol.
