Jordan Matter - Born to Dance (San Francisco Store)

Sunday, November 11, 2018 - 3:00pm

Jordan Matter is known to millions for his "10 Minute Photo Challenge" YouTube videos. Now, in one dazzling photograph after another, he portrays dancers—ages 2 through 18—in ordinary and extraordinary pursuits, from hanging with friends to taking selfies, from leaping for joy to feeling left out.

The subjects of Born to Dance include TV and internet stars like Chloé Lukasiak, Kalani Hilliker, Nia Sioux, and Kendall Vertes, as well as boys and girls from around the neighborhood. What they all share is the skill to elevate their hopes and dreams with beauty, humor, grace, and surprise. Paired with empowering words from the dancers themselves, the photographs convey each child’s declaration that they were born to dance.

Jordan Matter, a portrait and dance photographer, is the author of the New York Times bestseller Dancers Among Us. He is a viral phenomenon with over two million followers on social media. His YouTube series, "10 Minute Photo Challenge", has been viewed over 100 million times. “In Jordan Matter’s photos, dancers make all the world their stage,” wrote The New York Times. He has presented his work to a wide variety of organizations, including ESPN, the National Arts Club, the School of Visual Arts, Adorama Camera, B&H Photo, and Middlesex College. Matter was an Arts Envoy through the State Department on a speaking tour of South Korea sponsored by the U.S. Embassy.
