Natsumi Hayashi is a Tokyo-based photographer who started a series of levitating self-portraits. I, myself, have been tagging these (i.e. “jump” shots) in my Flickr collection. I’ve been encouraging friends and family to do this often as its just an escape from the norm. Though it’s somewhat distant from what Natsumi Hayashi has done with her series, it’s nice to see her collection and work.

Creative and interesting project by photography Sacha Goldberger.
Last summer, Sacha Goldberger decided he would take on a very interesting project. He assembled a team who helped him create an outside studio at Bois de Boulogne, a park located near Paris that’s 2.5 times the size of New York’s Central Park. He stopped joggers, asking them for a favor — would they sprint for him and then pose right after for his camera? Many obliged. Out of breath, these joggers showed an overwhelming amount of fatigue on their faces.
Goldberger then asked these same people to come into his professional studio exactly one week later. Using the same light, he asked them to pose the same way they had before.
“I wanted to show the difference between our natural and brute side versus how we represent ourselves to society,” Goldberger tells us. “The difference was very surprising.”

It all started with her being photographed by Steve McCurry in 1984. Probably one of the most famous portrait in modern times. What strikes the most are her eyes. You’re just drawn to them right away (at least I am).
I’ve been noticing some new portraits that focuses on this style per se. So I figured to make a list which I’ll constantly update as I get hypnotized.
