Photographer #009: Denis Darzacq

French photographer Denis Darzacq, 1961, is most known for his photographs with floating people. The people in his pictures appear to be weightless. He plays and experiments with the idea of a body in levitation. The photographs are surreal. They are not digitally manipulated, Darzacq uses dancers and athletes to get these spectacular results. Following pictures come from the series Hyper and La chute.

He's photos are very interesting, and sometimes he makes you believe that they are fakes.

I really enjoyed the video behind the scenes. I love that he seems to be shooting these digital seeming photos with a film camera.

So simple and beautiful! Really remind me of an urban, cleaner version of photographer Cole Rise.
