This incredible photography series by Jordan Matter illustrates the unbelievable talent of ballet dancers. Set in random situations, the elegance of the dancers contrasts starkly with their mundane background. It’s an amazing tribute to the skill and grace of this beautiful and elegant art form.
"The way I define happiness is being the creator of your experience, choosing to take pleasure in what you have, right now, regardless of the circumstances, while being the best you that you can be." - Leo Babauta
Dancers Among Us is a vast ongoing photography project led by Jordan Matter. In the spring of 2009 he began featuring top professional dancers in everyday situations throughout the United States and by next fall a book with a selection of those pictures will be released. No digital manipulation was used to create the images.
