You just never know who or what you may see when in New York and this was something I never would’ve imagine coming upon In the sea of locals and tourists going about their daily commute or pausing to take selfies outside of the Oculus, I saw these dancers.
A French photographer was doing a photo shoot with them for his project called Gravityless and I was enthralled by the dancers skills. She resides in New York and he is a break dancer from Paris.
I am very happy that they did not mind my “shadowing” their shoot; very happy! And there is no Photoshopping to make him float. He did that amazingly (and even higher than this) on his own!
I like comments. Do leave one! Teri 📷
Wow! Amazing dancer and beautiful capture. I would’ve loved seeing them dance.
Thanks and I felt so soft and wimpy compared to the muscles they had in their arms and legs LOL
Great dynamic shot. Single shot or rapid fire technique?
Oh definitely rapid to catch the ascent and descent.
Dancers are strong. Great shot. Do you know David Allen Coe’s song “Dakota the Dancing Bear”? It has nothing in common with your photo, but the silliness of the break dancer looking like he’s tripped and falling into her hand reminded me of “Dance Dance Dakota dance…” Don’t really know why.
Never heard of the dancing bear song but it reminds me of that song in Beetlejuice – shake shake shake Senora. This was just one image where he didn’t quite make the jump but in others he looks like he is floating. Thanks, Tim.
