WHO SAID THAT HUMANS CAN’T FLY?!
But yeah we can’t.
Anyway, this is an illusion done by a freaking awesome photographer, Natsumi Hayashi. She gave the most interesting answers during an interview.
"The only way to get a right timing for a shot is jumping a lot," Hayashi said in an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Mail, dispelling our hopeful illusions that she’s the first human being who can actually fly. "Sometimes I need to jump over 100 times to get a right shot" She does this in front of her camera, mounted on a tripod, and continues to do so until she achieves that perfect, natural-looking "levitation."
"I got the idea from an English idiom that says ‘to have one’s feet firmly planted on the ground," she continued. "In Japan, we have the exact same idiom. But I am not a practical person at all. Therefore, I try ‘not to have my feet firmly on the ground’ in my self-portrait photos to show my true self."
Words can’t explain magic, head on to her blog for more pictures. I’ll embed a couple more (11) for you guys in case you’re lazy.
