I've been so inspired and so into what I'm about to share, that it deserves to be the only feature for this week.

The topic of dance has been constantly reappearing in my day-to-day. People seem to be talking to me about it, I see it on TV and read about it on the internet, more than usual. I even went to a sneak preview this week and the movie they played was "Black Swan" - that new, dark, dance movie (superb, btw). And just today I watched a dance movie on the plane. These events have led me to already be in contact with two dance schools to check if they have any classes I would like. So, yes ... Dance has been on my mind, and the little flame in my heart that permanently exists, has been growing stronger and brighter.
This week, I found Jordan Matter. His website has been constantly open in my browser and I can't get enough of his photographs. Yes, Jordan Matter is a great photographer, but the reason I'm so obsessed is because of his "Dancers among us" project. It's an ongoing collaboration since spring 2009. He photographs dancers in an everyday, city setting. Just amazing, especially for a dance enthusiast. Here are a few of my favourites, though it was hard to choose because they are all my favourites.
Now these are super favourites because they were taken in Montreal ...
You have to check out the rest of his gallery.
I just love these photos, I love this project. Jordan Matter, if you're out there, somewhere, reading this - Thank You!
