Natsumi photographs mainly levitating self-portraits (and cats not levitating).
She lives in Tokyo with two cats.

I started taking photographs for my “levitating self-portrait” series in fall 2010, and began to post them as a diary titled “Today’s Levitation” on my website since January 2011. The “Today’s Levitation” shots capture myself sailing down city sidewalks, hovering over a train platform, gliding in a restaurant and suspended over a deserted field.
I do not use computer graphics such as by digitally inserting myself into the photos. Instead, I simply ask someone to press the shutter release button. The most difficult part is perfectly timing my jump and the shutter’s release. To get one photograph, I sometimes take more than 200 shots.

White Tulips on my table

Welcome to 2014! How was your beginning? Mine was very hygge. We stayed in town with good friends, our dogs and cats (all together, right), good food and drinks.
