It’s been a moment since we last looked at what the #Leeds suspension team has been up to, and as always they have something great to show us. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this team, #Leeds is based out of St. Petersburg, Russia and is run by Arseniy Andersson, along with piercer Vlad Sintezz and rigger Dmitry Hokkins. Outside of offering personal and private suspensions, their team focuses on creating beautiful and interesting scenes involving body suspension. Their themed shoots are always fantastic to look through, and include well executed suspensions and photography, as well as lighting, makeup, and costumes that really pull the whole concept together. Their recent photo set, titled Dark World, has a bit of a macabre feeling to it, but still manages to make the suspensions look beautiful rather than gory.
It can be really easy as a facilitator working on big projects like this to forget about the suspendees as the day unfolds. Looking through the photos that #Leeds has done over time, it’s wonderful to see the behind the scene shots that capture the laughter, enjoyment, and fun of the experience they are having. It is clear that those suspending, along with the individuals helping out, are having a great time. At the end of the day, good photos or not, the experience of the person who has suspended really does come first. It’s wonderful to know that their team keeps that in mind as they create these suspensions.
I am sure this isn’t the last time we’ll see this team’s fantastic images on here. I would actually be pretty surprised if Arseniy didn’t already have more suspension ideas in the works for his his crew. Thank you guys for sharing these with us. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next.
