The NYC Dance Project is set to launch a new book, The Art of Movement, featuring breathtaking portraits of more than 70 of the world’s most talented dancers from American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Martha Graham Dance Company, Alvin Ailey, Royal Danish Ballet, the Royal Ballet and many others.

Founded by photographers Ken Browar and Deborah Ory, the project aims to celebrate the beauty of movement and dance. Ken’s passion for dance began when he lived in Paris and photographed dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet. His fashion work has appeared in Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and many other European fashion magazines.

Meanwhile Deborah has been a dancer since age seven, and her passion for this art is evident in her photography. She began her photography career while injured as a dancer; photographing the rehearsals she could not be in due to her injury. After moving to New York City, working as a photo editor at magazines such as House & Garden and Mirabella, she began shooting editorial work for Self, Health, Martha Stewart Living and Real Simple.

NYC Dance Project is a collaboration between Ken and Deborah, merging their experiences and creative passions to create unique and beautiful portraits of the dance community. The project is not only a collaboration between the photographers, but also with their subjects. Each shoot is prepared as though it were its own dance production, with attention paid to every detail – movement, lighting and the feeling of each photograph.

The Art of Movement will be published by Black Dog & Leventhal and is available now for pre-order. It will be in bookstores from 25 October. Discover more atwww.nycdanceproject.com.
