Ken Browar and Deborah Ory have created an immense body of work showcasing the wonderful world of dance and dancers centered in New York City. Ken’s career began when he photographed dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet, and his fashion work has appeared in Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and many other European fashion magazines. Deborah began her photography career while injured as a dancer; photographing the rehearsals she could not be in due to her injury.
NYC Dance Project is a collaboration between Deborah and Ken, merging their experiences and creative passions to create unique and beautiful portraits of the dance community. The project seeks to truly portray the agility, talent, and personality of their subjects. Each shoot is prepared as though it were it's own dance production, with attention paid to every detail - movement, lighting and the feeling of each photograph.
NYC Dance Project has been featured in many magazines including Harper's Bazaar, Italian Vogue, L'Uomo Vogue and Glamour. Their work has been featured on many websites including Today.com, Elle.com, USA Today.com, Huffington Post, Hasselblad and many others. The Art of Movement, featuring over 70 dancers, was published on October 25, 2016 and won an International Photography Award for best book.
