Who among us doesn't want to jump for joy with the sunny return of spring in New York? The Dancers Among Us project takes things a step—and a pirouette—further. Photographer Jordan Matter started the project by asking a dancer from the Paul Taylor Dance Company to perform in an unexpected public space in New York, and the result is this amazing shot below of a man in a business suit leaping across the subway platform at 42nd Street. And it just grew from there—elsewhere you'll see dancers in midair (and midkiss) all over New York City. Matter's intention is simple: "Relish moments large and small, recognize the beauty around you and be alive!"
