Naked Ballet Dancers Bring Humanity Back To NYC Streets In This New Photobook

Photo: Jordan Matter

It is easy to allow our daily routines and responsibilities to turn seemingly vibrant City streets into lumps of predictable grey. NYC photographer Jordan Matter hopes to break the cycle of monotony with his most recent project, Dancers After Dark.

In this groundbreaking photobook, Matter captures naked ballet dancers in the midst of the world’s most bustling cities. While celebrating the immense beauty of the human body, “Dancers After Dark” brings a sense of curiosity, artistry and humanity back to everyday places like Washington Square Park, Times Square, and Columbus Circle.

With a refreshing aura of fearlessness, his shots reminds us of the great chances that can be taken within our City, and within ourselves. Browse this collection of the best of Matter’s photos taken directly from New York City streets, and be sure to check out the full photobook, which can be purchased on Amazon.
