hayashi natsumi: levitation self portraits

9 Aug

elevating the art of self-portraits to a new level – literally – tokyo-based photographer
hayashi natsumi‘s work consists of the artist seemingly floating in midair within conventional
settings in and around the japanese city. entitled ‘today’s levitation’, the series is updated daily
with new photographs set in a variety of locations from a desolate street to a busy train platform.

using the aid of a simple tripod, the self-portraits are taken with a 10-second timer from
a distance. all the poses are captured in mid-jump with no aid of a rigging system or photoshop.
impossibly relaxed and composed, the floating subject injects a surreal atmosphere to
the often normal set, rendering an image devoid of gravity or physics.
