Award-winning Spanish photographer José A. Gallego creates stunning images that entrance us through their technical virtuosity and timeless themes. With his modern sense for composition combined with sensitivity for lighting that nods to the great Spanish Baroque painters, Gallego crafts incredible portraits of exotic animals, lonesome vistas, and intricate scenes of urbanity. Employing high contrast lighting, forms seem to protrude from the abyss, focusing our attention on the fine articulation of detail captured by Gallego’s adept camera. Many of his photographs convey a sense of isolation or loneliness.
Gallego is an active professor and has exhibited his photographs frequently throughout Spain and in the United States. His works have appeared in major publications such as National Geographic, El Pais, and Digital Photo.

How many of us have felt an urgent and uncontrollable desire to dance at inappropriate times and places? And how many of us actually do? Why, as we get older, often suppress our excitement and enthusiasm, when we’re in public? At what point did we lose the magic of the fantasy world we have created when we’re child? These issues have been the motto for the American photographer Jordan Matter created the project “Dancers Among Us,” a representation of life as it really should be lived.

Inspired by the plays of his three year old son, Jordan Matter wanted to create photographs that show the world as if it were seen through the eyes of a child. While he was watching a performance of Paul Taylor Dance Company, he knew immediately he had found the perfect partner for this “kidding”. In your head, it all made sense: the dancers are storytellers, are trained to embody exciting moments and their bodies are an impressive combination athletic and artistic.

The project began in spring 2009. No trampolines or any other support used: only good will and many hours of training, and with just that, Jordan and the dancers created a fantasy world, offering us a lengthy and unusual look at scenarios and situations of day-by-day that are so familiar to all of us.
