Jordan Matter's "Dancers Among Us" has been a wildly successful photo project that he has been working on for a couple of years now. The juxtaposition he achieves in his images of dancers that are off the stage and out on the street is fantastic. Even though in a technical aspect some of the photos aren't all that great, the idea is powerful and has been featured in magazines, TV shows and countless blogs all over the globe.
Now Jordan sells his series as a 240 page, full color book and they have been flying off the shelves since the publisher released them on October 23rd. "DAU" is #1 on almost every online book sellers list in the Arts and this is only the beginning, the book has only been released for 2 weeks! This just goes to show you that if you have the right idea, and enough drive and passion behind you, you can turn a concept into an incredibly successful artistic movement. Enjoy!
