Dancing on Air


I met Jordan Matter, the photographer and author of Dancers Among Us  last June at a lunch for book bloggers at the 2012 Book Expo in Manhattan.  Mr. Matter, a former dancer, was working the tables at this event looking for coverage for his book, which is now a New York Times bestseller. The photos below give you an idea of what's in the book, but to fully appreciate his work take a look at the  slideshow on Mr. Jordan's web site. Expect to be enchanted and exhilarated.

These pictures make me want to celebrate books, bodies, life...

He does not use Photoshop to achieve these images. See his blog or the book to learn how he does it!
