Dancers among us New York photographer Jordan Matter’s “Dancers Among Us” project features performers from the Paul Taylor Dance Company performing guerrilla dance moves in iconic Manhattan locations Michelle Fleet, NY Public Library (JORDAN MATTER PHOTOGRAPHY / BARCROFT USA) By getting the dancers to pull off their difficult poses surrounded by normal people in everyday situations, Jordan hopes to highlight the skill of talented individuals who walk among us everyday. “I was thinking about the recession and what that meant for talented people who may have lost their jobs. Wanting to project the dancer within the situation, be that at 42nd Street Times Square subway station or at the New York Museum of Natural History, Jordan wanted the pictures to look organic. Photographing the dancers in candid situations has provided Jordan and his dance partners certain issues along the way. Jordan’s photos rely heavily on the general public’s participation and reactions.

Beau, flamboyant, charismatique, séducteur et sexy, mais encore agressif, brutal, le danseur à qui « personne n'arrivait à la cheville » selon ses propres termes provoquait des émeutes lorsqu'il apparaissait. A la Une de tous les journaux et tabloïds, il est l'ami de Jackie Kennedy, de la Princesse Margaret, mais encore de Mick Jagger et de Freddie Mercury. Son appétit sexuel défraye la chronique. Il devient une icône érotique et politique, emblème du mouvement de libération des années 60. « En pleine guerre froide et expansion de la culture de masse capitaliste, il est la bonne personne au bon moment, commente l'écrivain Christophe Fiat qui a écrit un spectacle intitulé Rudolf Noureev is dead. Il séduit les foules, apparaît en compagnie de femmes riches comme Jackie Kennedy mais ses amants sont ses escorts boys. » Il mourra du sida en 1993.

The last cowboys: Stunning black and white images show a rugged and romantic piece of Americana as it clings on for survival By Daily Mail Reporter Published: 02:25 GMT, 27 August 2012 | Updated: 05:10 GMT, 28 August 2012 Breath-taking photographs have captured America's last cowboys, as the age-old profession, or art-form, all but dies out. A national icon, and an integral part of the country's story, the cowboy is a romantic, rugged metaphor for America's frontier past -- and one that has captivated Hollywood for decades. For years, photographer Adam Jahiel has been taking pictures of the cowboys of Nevada's Great Basin, perhaps one of the most inhospitable regions of the already harsh West. Stunning: The breath-taking photographs capture America's last cowboys 'These people represent one of the last authentic American subcultures, one that is disappearing at a rapid rate,' Jahiel said. Cowboying as an art-form is almost obsolete. The late 1900s were tough times for cowboys, ranchers, farmers and anyone working with the land in the U.S. Disappearing: The age-old profession, or art-form, is all but dying out

Incredible and Scary 3D Pencil Drawings by 17-year old Fredo Realistic pencil drawings are always interesting. It is nice to watch how artist has managed to draw something like it was photographed by camera. However, the plenty of the pencil drawings you have seen by now probably cannot be compared with the following drawings which are literally mind-blowing.Those drawings were made by Fredo, a 17-year old guy from Chile who has found an interesting way to create 3D drawings.Fredo has started to think more seriously about his drawing skills when he was 15. He has learned from some already known artists in this field like M.C.Escher. He also says that he is inspired by the work of Rembrandt, Alex Grey and Beksinki. When he was asked about the time which he needs to produce one of his drawings, he said that some of his drawing have took him months while he was drawing them. Here you can see some of his 3D realistic pencil drawings which look like they were photographed with camera rather than drawn with hand.

Julie Heffernan & Escape Into Life from Julie Heffernan’s Constructions of Self Julie Heffernan creates sensuous figurative painting, like co-Yale MFAS, John Currin and Linda Yuskavage, but her luminous oils are patently unique among them and most working artists today. A Victorian impetus to conjoin, edging toward pastiche, creates artfully staged Surrealist environments. Julie Heffernan at P.P.O.W Gallery Julie Heffernan at Catherine Clark Gallery Thanks to Modern Art Obsession for finding this artist!

En Scènes - Parcours Introduction La danse contemporaine française apparue au début des années 80 a entraîné un mouvement de fond artistique qui a essaimé avec une vitalité unique dans le monde entier. Des noms désormais connus à l'international comme Philippe Decouflé, Angelin Preljocaj, Jean-Claude Gallotta, Joëlle Bouvier et Régis Obadia...ont contribué à construire et faire évoluer un paysage chorégraphique en perpétuel questionnement.
