Body modification artist, sideshow performer, and body suspension practitioner, Lassi is definitely a busy man in this industry. Many of you here in the states may remember him from the wonderful performances he did with Snake Oil Sideshow last year. His newest project is a collaboration with photographer V-V Elomaa in Helsinki, Finland; the two have come together to create a private space in Elomaa’s photography studio for body suspension, giving those suspending the opportunity to have beautiful photographs taken of their experience.

A majority of suspension images that I see are quick cell phone shots, and although many phones now have fairly decent cameras on them, it just can’t compare to the quality of a professional. I think these photographs definitely prove that point, and are a great example of how lovely body suspension can be when it is captured by a skilled photographer. On top of providing those who participate with wonderful images of their suspensions, Lassi is only taking a limited number of appointments for each session to provide plenty of time for the individuals he is working with.

I had heard about this upcoming project a little while back, and was excited to see the photographs from it. I’m happy to say it was well worth the wait. I always get excited when I see people who put so much time into the suspensions they perform. I’m sure the relaxed environment and the one on one attention provided for these suspensions made it a fantastic experience for everyone involved.

I am sure we will get to see more pictures from this as the project continues. Thank you so much to Lassi for getting the photographs and information to us and for all of the hard work the team has put into this. I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next.
