Months ago we posted about the Flying Japanese girl and this time around we are featuring the Flying Chinese man called Li Wei. Like the Japanese girl, Li Wei’s defying gravity photos are not computer generated, he uses ropes, mirrors and a lot of acrobatics to capture these amazing photos.
The only use of the computer is to remove those wires, nothing else is altered, although some of his other works rely on photo manipulation, these don’t. The photos themselves are great, he actually performs all these acrobatic stunts in the exact location as per photos, not the plane one of course.
He would tie himself using a rope from an edge of a building just to capture that one shot that technically defies gravity. I think his work is great but could use a little more professional photography. For hundreds of other photos, be sure to check out his gallery.
