To celebrate the recent publication of photographer Jordan Matter’s Dancers Among Us: A Celebration of Joy in the Everyday, we dug deep into our coffers of dance fever: Slouchy legwarmers, ribbon dance wands, oh-so-glam leotards, Bacon-era Footloose…
… castanets, tea towels and aprons for the kitchen dancers (they, too are among us), that signature red umbrella (ohmigosh, did you know that other dancers hold umbrellas, too?), and a fine array of dancing shoes for wherever and whenever the mood strikes! (Oh, and a camera, so that even though you’re dancing like no one’s watching, you can still be documented.) Perhaps you might even find yourself… dancing in the streets.
Congratulations to author Jordan Matter, whose book debuted at #29 on the New York Times extended bestseller list after less than a full week on sale! Here’s the image that launched it all:Jordan Matter
Happy Election Day, everyone! I wonder if Jordan is off photographing dancers casting their ballets…ahem…I mean ballots.
