I came across Natsumi Hayashi’s work the other day just tumblin‘ around. I was immediately drawn to the cleanliness of her photographs. The primary draw to her simple, yet substantial photo blog are the “Today’s Levitation” photographs. There have been similar photographs taken by several different artists over the years, so it should be no big deal that a cute and clever Japanese girl decided to start a blog of levitation photos. Natsumi’s photographs have an otherworldy element to them. Some of them are plainly “staged” while others are hard to figure out what’s going on. Add the occasional photo of her cats (I know, SO JAPANESE!) and you have my new favorite blog. She also happens to have effortless style. I want a male version of those boots! Someone?
