well, quite. Experts baffled, etc. Genuinely confusing - film wasn't fast enough to take that shot when it was taken. Yet there it is.

it's magic, i think :)

everything is a copy of a copy. i did the jump thing last year because i read article online that said it was a guaranteed way to make people smile in a photo. everything just went from there. this year i'm loving Denis Darzacq's La Chute

Denis Darzacq's La Chute
