His Photographs Turn Dance Into Sculpture

When Alan Cumming appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers, he made sure to discuss his album cover that was taken from a photograph by Jordan Matter. The shot, part of a collection of nudes that appears in Jordan's new book Dancers After Dark, the follow up to the New York Times Bestseller Dancers Among Us, is breathtaking. In my opinion, it is a monumental achievement.

Jordan Matter, a Manhattan portrait photographer, is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Dancers Among Us, a collection of photographs of dancers in everyday situations around the world, and his collection of photos of nudes in public places, Dancers After Dark, is a monumental achievement, in my humble opinion. He and his work have been featured on television, in print, online, and in exhibitions throughout the world, including BuzzfeedABC World News TonightTodayThe Tyra Banks Show, the BBC, The New York TimesThe Huffington Post, #1 on Reddit, Daily Mail U.K.O, The Oprah Magazine, NPR, Lincoln Center, and the Savina Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, Korea. Matter lives in New York with his wife, two children, dog and cat. Subscribe to "How I Broke Into" on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, TuneIn, I Heart Radio, or Google, or listen to the entire podcast here:
