Photographer Jordan Matter spent three years creating this photography collection, “Dancers Among Us,” to celebrate play and fantasy—through dancers, who tell stories with their bodies.
Inspired by watching his 3-year-old son play, Matter says: “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 … Relish moments large and small, recognize the beauty around you, and be alive!”
