Denis Darzacq’s photography is fantastic (and almost unbelievable) when you consider the fact that “there is nothing false in these scenes. These moments really occurred. There is no fiction, no retouching or special effects”.
Instead, he uses athletic and gymnastic young folks as well as good timing to make it look like his subjects are about to smack the ground face first.
In Denis’ own words, “at the moment of the leap, chance and gravity also intervened”.
