Photographer Jordan Matter created the “Dancers among us” project, where he places professional dancers in Manhattan (see the making-of, above).  These beautiful photos remind me of what famed British pyshcologist Henry Havelock Ellis said “Dance is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is no mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself.”

Seen on the fabulous blog “Va te faire voir“.
