Jordan Matter – Dancers Amongst us

I am a huge photography fan.  Not only do photographers have to have the expertise and knowledge of lighting, equipment and angles, but they also have to be creative. Jordan Matter is a photographer who after attending a dance recital one evening, came up with the concept for “Dancers Amongst Us“.


Dancers are storytellers. They’re trained to capture passion with their bodies. The often create a fantasy world or offer us a deeper look into familiar settings. They bring to life what we feel but what most of us, lacking their artistry and athleticism, are unable to express physically. I spent three years shooting dancers around the country, and I was humbled by their enthusiasm for their craft. I would tweet and Facebook when I would arrive in a city, and dancers would volunteer their time to pose for me, often traveling several hours to participate.
