After watching his three-year-old son play with a toy bus, photographer Jordan Matter was inspired to create a photo series showing the world as if through his child’s eyes.
“The people in the images would be alive and in the moment, celebrating all aspects and emotions of everyday life,” Matter wrote in his artist statement.
He found that dancers made the perfect subjects to bring his vision to life, and spent three years travelling around the country, photographing volunteer dancers doing extraordinary things in ordinary, everyday situations.
Matter has shared a selection of photos from his series with Business Insider; see more at his website and Facebook page. And if you want to learn more about how Matter shot his subjects, check out the video here (also at the end of the photo slideshow).
