Embrace the risks and opportunities that life presents. Jordan Matter, a portrait and dance photographer, is the author of the New York Times bestseller Dancers Among Us. The cover alone is perfect and such a good innuendo of what the book contains. Arcs, lines and shapes working together with the fluid curves of the dancers, it all melted together to become one piece of art. You should like examining this book while spent your free time. I love even more that this one took a risk, and that the pictures were stamped first by their time of night taken. All captured in a single frame.
There is no bad here. I can't say this enough - or in enough languages. Each image highlights the amazing abilities of these artists—and presents a core message to the reader: Say yes. Diamond after dark this unique club concept features djs go go dancers and age 18 admission but our establishment isnt just for the young. The human body emerges in these pictures as a kind of movable sculpture, conveying very little of the sexuality you'd normally associate with nude photography, but calling to mind instead Classical art, anatomy textbooks, and the expression of a complete control over the muscles and gestures of a body in prime fitness. Thinking of the public places, and how the nudity could bring unwanted attention, the timing needed to be impeccable. Nonetheless, I read the book cover to cover.
Bottomless, on the other hand, might be an issue, but I have to assume special permissions were obtained for this photo shoot. Dancers photographed naked in various sites around the world, many of them major tourist spots. Without a permit or a plan, Jordan Matter led hundreds of the most exciting dancers in the world out of their comfort zones--not to mention their clothes--to explore the most compelling reaches of beauty and the human form. Of course I love the photo for the nudes, they were tasteful and wonderfully done and the composition of the photos were just amazing. I don't know anything about dance, so I can't tell you anything about the dance poses. The image quality is very vivid and the poses of the dancers add interest to the subjects. To my eyes, they are not pornagraphic.
I received a digital edition of this book from netgalley, for honest review. I'm glad this is actually a photo book in which we only have photos. Each image highlights the amazing abilities of these artists—and presents a core message to the reader: Say yes. The photographs not only show off the human form and dancing, but also let the locations shine. The body is such an amazing thing. She'd be available for a photoshoot after her show. However, there are no genitals on display, for those curious.
I reviewed this book for Netgalley and my options are 100% my own. Thank you Netgalley for the advanced digital copy of this book! New edition: Revised and edited by the author. Matter was an Arts Envoy through the State Department on a speaking tour of South Korea sponsored by the U. I knocked a few stars off this because I probably expected to feel the same way I did when I first looked through one of his books. Often illicit and taken during cold nights or early mornings when the streets were mostly empty, dancers shed their clothes to be immortalized by Matter.
Dancers After Dark is an amazing celebration of the human body and the human spirit, as dancers, photographed nude and at night, strike poses of fearless beauty. I wasn't at all sure what to expect, and wasn't expecting what I got. Definitely a book to check out. The photos are grouped by theme - Vulnerability, Ferocity, Stability, Ecstasy - and include shots from sunset to dawn, in spectacular black and white and glorious colour. He is a viral phenomenon with over two million followers on social media. Beautifully, tasteful, artistic photos of dancers, with the world as their backdrop.
The Traveller's Story follows the immature Faulkner to a gambling house in Paris. I recommend to fans of photography or dancing. I love one of a dancer balancing on pointe on top of a wine bottle. I'd sure love to hear some. In so many of the photographs, you can see people walking by and stopping to stare in wonder at the amazing poses these dancers are pulling off. The whole book was done in the dark and without permissions. I am frankly open-mouthed in my appreciation of how beautifully he arranged the framing and lighting in these shots, given how little time he had to work with.
Mis favoritas fueron aquellas que mostraban un alto contraste entre el sujeto y el lugar, entre lo simple y sucio de los callejones y la fuerza y gracia de una bailarina. The smoothness and the lighting basically make the experience perfect, as well as the awfully clever shooting angles. The photos run the gamut of emotions: fun and saucy, quiet and graceful, energetic and adrenaline-filled and more. Dancers After Dark features artists from Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Dutch National Ballet, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Houston Ballet, Cirque du Soleil, and many others. Wonderful quotes accompany many of the photos, which bring another level of meaning to the dancers and the photographer so carefully capturing each perfect moment.
Their nudity is a symbol of the freeing of the soul, a necessity for a dancer. Some photos are of one dancer, some are of pairs. The cruel stigma of nudity! Yes, they are all nude. And no clothes, no arrests, no regrets. Embrace the risks and opportunities that life presents. Some are compositions with multiple dancers in intricate poses you have to stare at for several minutes to fully appreciate them.
