never planned to be a professional photographer. It was either baseball or acting that was going to be his obvious career choice. But one day he attended an exhibit by photojournalist Henri Cartier-Bresson. His attitude began to change. Cartier-Bresson’s images of humanity moved Jordan to learn how to photograph people intimately. Soon it became a hobby. Then it became a passion. But it only became a career when he decided to outdo photos for his friend who had just paid too much for bad headshots. He did. Her agents soon sent Jordan their clients, who in turn recommended him to their friends, and a photography career was born. The Today Show, Tyra Banks, MSNBC, CBS, NBC and the BBC have since profiled Jordan. Look for Jordan Matter’s Dancers Among Us, a New York Times Bestseller.

I love putting on these shows because it gives the audience a chance to see first-hand that doing meaningful work is not only possible but also necessary to have a fulfilling life while here on earth. Tickets to the 5th Legacy show will be $5 but will all go to She’s The First – an organization that provides education to girls whose opportunities are extremely limited.
It’s my goal in life to create a positive ripple on everyone in the world one way or another. That’s a tall order, I know, but I accept the mission.
