Whenever yoga instructors Claudine and Honza Lafond aren’t teaching at their Sydney-based studio YogaBeyond, they’re often wandering off to exotic locations and commemorating their journeys with graceful poses. Over the years, they’ve taken their mind and body endeavors everywhere. They’ve posed in front of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, jungles of Bali, London, and even on Cockatoo Island. The couple doesn’t pose separately in their photos. Instead, they work together and pull off amazing acrobatic stances that require strength, balance, and trust of one another. It shows you just how incredible the human body is. These yogi-soulmates never let love slow them down from seeing the world from new perspectives.
Berlin based dancer Mickael Jou get the idea from being taken photos by tourist, combines his love of photos with dance together and undertakes a project to capture 365 self-portraits. In this project, Jou creative seemingly defies gravity in some snaps, while others feature him in skillful dance poses. The results inject a sense of escapism to otherwise ordinary situations – Jou almost floating through the air. Quite interesting series. The only thing I can think when looks at these photos is why he need to take off his shoes, which makes he looks less like flying somehow.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to flow the air with the feeling of weightlessness? Antigravity, the series of pictures created by the Serbian photographer Mina Sarenac, depict women donning assorted flowing ensembles and suspended in real environments. Without gravity, the impression of lightness is omnipresent and strengthened by dresses and tissues, which seem really liberated from any physical constraints. Mina said: “Antigravity is a project in which I tried to describe feelings of freedom, both physical and emotional. It connects ideas and dreams, fashion and extreme sports.” Really beautiful and poetic series! Find out more here.
Photographed by Egor N, Coffee Time is a stunning, gravity-defying photo series that certainly peaks your imagination and shows us moments that we hardly notice in life. Filled with swirls, pours, sugar lumps and more. This series of high speed photography perfectly capturing the beauty of splashes and sprays of milk. Besides the questions about the laws of gravitation and how many cups were broken during the process, I really wonder why “coffee time”? Since I only see the splash of milk anyway, is it more appropriate to call it “Milk Time”? [source]
