Reviews

"Eye-popping fun."

-The Chicago Sun-Times


"Bodies of breathtaking grace and agility transform ordinary spaces, seemingly defying gravity as they plié and pirouette through busy streets, a record shop, along a heliport tarmac, and under the Santa Monica boardwalk."

--O, The Oprah Magazine

--The Washington Post

"In his shots of dancers in flight on sidewalks and city streets -- excitable superheroes among us -- Matter has produced a series of mini-musicals, frozen in time but full of energy."

--The Washington Post

--Smithsonian magazine

"It's a rare book that contains anything of interest on the copyright page, but this caught my eye: 'No trampolines or other devices were used in the taking of the photographs in this book, and the dancers' poses have not been digitally enhanced or altered.' It's not hard to see why the author felt that such a disclaimer was necessary; the photographs in this book are unbelievable."

--Smithsonian magazine

--Redbook

"The pictures in Dancers Among Us of pro hoofers getting their jeté on in public is a call to find the joy in everyday life--and to give in to that urge to boogie no matter where or when it hits you."

--Redbook

--Dance magazine

"Honest and spontaneous, his pictures are sure to resonate with dancers and non-dancers alike."

--Dance magazine

--Alan Cumming
