"The Art of Movement, by Ken Browar and Deborah Ory, is a lusciously photographed collection of dancers in motion that captures ephemeral moments of gravity-defying grace. The book features some of the world's most accomplished performers-as Martha Graham termed them, athletes of God."
Natalie Beach, Oprah.com
"In the book The Art of Movement, Ken Browar and Deborah Ory of NYC Dance Project capture some of the most accomplished dancers in the world in a series of striking poses. Here, Misty Copeland, Marcelo Gomes, Charlotte Landreau and others share what they've learned through their dedication to dance."—The Guardian
"Ken Browar and Deborah Ory's breathtaking dance photography captures both the stillness of a single instant and the vitality of movement. Their portfolio was the highlight of our March 2016 issue recreation of Edgar Degas's masterworks, featuring Misty Copeland, and their oeuvre doesn't end there. Bravo, Ken and Deobrah, on a stunning and visceral body of work."—Glenda Bailey, editor-in-chief, Harper's Bazaar
