Searching through the countless photographs of body suspension online, it seems more and more people are drifting away from professional photography for the comfort and simplicity of taking pictures with their cell phones. Although there is absolutely nothing wrong with using something that is so convenient for many of us, it is wonderful when we get to see photographs that set the bar a little higher.
Please be aware, the photos after the break contain nudity.
There are several groups overseas that have continually put out beautiful photographs of their work over and over again; one of those groups is #Leeds Suspension team out of St. Petersburg, Russia. You may remember them being featured on here before, and I’m happy to see that they are still working hard to deliver stunning images like these.
For these photographs they teamed up with Blackfox Project, whose goal was capturing the feelings of those suspended as opposed to having models play a role. With photos like these, you can see the amount of time and care that went into the entire process from setting them up to shooting and editing. Black Fox, who is also from St. Petersburg, said that her interest in photographing suspension comes from her love of getting to see true emotions.
I think they did a fantastic job of showing one of my favorite things about suspension; the simple pleasure of just seeing it. These images are the type that you can really just look at and appreciate the beauty of the suspension happening and the human body.
Thank you so much to #Leeds Suspension and Black Fox for letting us use these photographs, and for all the hard work they put into the project. I hope that we continue to see images from their group as well as others that have this level of time and care put into them.
