Cotrone Pilates is excited to welcome IC Rapport to our Spring Fling! As our wine and cheese party gets started Saturday, iconic photos of Joseph Pilates will be available for sale. Along with some very fun fitness apparel inspired by the man himself. 

Throughout the Sixties, Rapoport was called upon to photograph Francois Truffaut, Samuel Beckett, Charles Aznavour, JFK, Jackie Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Robert Penn Warren, Fidel Castro, The Lovin’ Spoonful and scores of other notables.

In 1961, I.C. Rapoport was fortunate to photograph Mr. Joseph H. Pilates in his New York “gymnasium”. The Pilates Fitness world is fortunate to have this rare glimpse into Mr. Pilates’ workplace styles and equipment.
