This is a beautiful follow-up to Matter’s bestselling Dancers Among Us. Jordan Matter photographed ballet dancers in locations around the globe at night in stunning poses. And yes, they are nude. The dancers’ perfectly sculpted bodies in acrobatic poses highlight their dedication and passion for their art. The varied locations of the photos, from New York City, to Paris, to Stockholm, to Montreal add to this dazzling collection. And to think all these photos were taken without anyone being arrested! ~Joan

— From 2016 Art/Photography


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.

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. After all the risk and daring, the result is extraordinary: 300 dancers, 400 locations, more than 150 stunning photographs. And no clothes, no arrests, no regrets.

Each image highlights the amazing abilities of these artists--and presents a core message to the reader: Say yes rather than no, and embrace the risks and opportunities that life presents.
