"Given all the crazy things I asked dancers to do over the years, it was only fitting that when it came my turn to jump, the heavens opened up," Matter says. "I jumped 21 times in five minutes through the pouring rain, and that was more than enough to gain a deeper understanding of exactly how difficult the poses in this book are. The dancers make it look so effortless, and yet it is so, so difficult."
What's next for the artist? Jordan reveals to SHAPE that there will be a 2014 wall calendar released featuring more of his work. And he's continued shooting since the book was published.
