We all get stuck. And imagination, playfulness, art, dance, humor, truth—that’s what get us unstuck.
And that’s what Jordan’s photo series, here, is fundamentally about:
“I first came up with the idea for ‘Dancers Among Us’ as I was watching my son play with this toy bus. I was inspired by his passion for his fantasy, and I wondered why we lose that innocence as we grow into adulthood. I wanted to create photographs to show a world as if seen through the eyes of a child —a world where everyday moments are beautiful, a world that makes the ordinary extraordinary.”
