Leap Into The Void


1960, Yves Klein, Harry Shunk, Janos Kender.

This picture always makes me shiver full of awe and discomfort :S It's a weird mix of feeling like you're intruding and being invited to look at the same time, at this guy; it's surprising how effective this photo is actually, as it was all choreographed and set up and collaged together, to get this final image. So it's not even real. Really. But it is, totally. It's still very stirring. Ahh the power of photography...
