    'Floating' Photographer

    Interesting article today about Natsumi Hayashi, who photographers herself jumping so she looks like she is levitating. Sometimes the camera is remotely controlled or she may have an assistant. Either way, it is interesting.

    This visual trope has also landed French photographer Denis Darzacq a World Press Photo award and quite a lot of attention a few years ago: http://www.denis-darzacq.com/chute.htm
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    I remember seeing this a couple of months ago. Would take a lot of work. Despite the fact it isn't an original idea as people keep pointing out, it's still one that is super effective. It can lead to a lot of powerful narrative series, with endless concepts.
    But she expressed herself in many different ways,
    Until she lost control again.
    And walked upon the edge of no escape,
    And laughed I've lost control.
