Inspired to take pictures that captured his 5-year-old son's wide-eyed enthusiasm for life, NYC-based photographer Jordan Matter started snapping professional dancers jumping, leaping, spinning, and literally flying through daily life—on the beach, across a subway platform, in a library, and through the rain. The result: the nearly 200 photos in his new book, Dancers Among Us ($18; amazon.com). All of the shots are totally authentic (none were digitally altered, and no trampolines or other devices were used to help the performers catch air), which makes the artistry and athleticism they exhibit that much more impressive.
Matter was nice enough to share 10 incredible photos from his book, along with insider info on how he captured each one!
