People are defying gravity left, right and center in the mid-jump photo series by Tomas Januska, a photography student born in Kretinga, Lithuania, and studying in London, United Kingdom. Although everyone and their mother has executed a mid-jump photo at least once in their lifetime, this series gives the playful pose an artistic depth.

Shot entirely in black and white, the mid-jump photo series is also noteworthy for the diversity captured. People of all walks of life participate in the fun photo project, giving it a sense of worldly camaraderie. Design Taxi writes, "Januska said that photographing these selected subjects allowed them to ‘give themselves away’ in the studio" as they were not bound to dance rules."
