The Surreal Gravity-Defying Photographs of Philippe Ramette

Crisis of casualness

Irrational contemplation

Rational exploration of the undersea : irrational walk

Between 2003 and 2006, French conceptual artist Philippe Ramette created a series of gravity-defying photographs that show him in seemingly impossible poses. These illusions were not created digitally as Ramette explains to The Guardian in 2009, “You see a tension in my hands, my red face is far from serene as the blood rushes to it, my suit is ruffled.” Web Urbanist has images and a brief explanation of how Ramette’s illusion is accomplished.
