Natsumi Hayashi is a photographer who takes self-portraits of herself levitating all over Tokyo. Aren't these photos awesome? I certainly admire her for taking jumping shots in public spaces!

And speaking of jumping shots, I saw this jump series by Philippe Halsman for Life Magazine and couldn't help but smile. I especially love the ones of Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot.

All images by Natsumi Hayashi. You can see more of her photos here.

  2. This is awesome! Isn't it amazing how no one is even looking at her in the photos?

    1. tammy, i know right? or maybe they already saw her jumping multiple times to perfect the leap that it wasn't a novelty anymore. either way, its so brave of her to do it in public.
