And the photographer shot the images, intervening only to give a few guidelines as to their movement. However, at the moment of the leap, chance and gravity also intervened.
And so the story could begin. With remote echoes of Icarus, impelled to take wing by his father in a glorious attempt to defy the laws of the universe and of gravity before he fell to earth, defeated by more powerful force. The persistence of dream – in spite of reason, in spite of Newton and Galileo. The thrill of altitude, the happiness of the passionate, the wild and the sporting.
