40 Examples of Gravitating Photography

From Hair-Raising Surrealism to Floating Facetography

— December 24, 2010 — Art & Design
Take a look through these amazing examples of gravitating photography and prepare to explore the otherworldly and surreal.

Floating illusions let individuals escape from reality, providing its audience with an exciting rush. From haunting teen photography to suspended self-portraits, these pictorials are guaranteed to help you get lost in a whole other dimension.

Implications - The subject of levitation is a mesmerizing illusion many artists use to depict artworks and product print ads. The idea of gravity-defying images captures a moment that really forces the viewers to take a look at what they're seeing. The attraction of this surreal and sublime concept demonstrates how brands should push the boundaries of imagery to attract consumers when they're advertising their products.
