New York-based Daniel Pianetti contacted NOWNESS through our open editorial submissions page, and we enlisted him to curate what he terms an “idea-associated series”: a compilation of images sourced from the web that, in this case, riffs on the theme Ten Lords-a-Leaping. The resulting layouts highlight visualizations of gravity and weightlessness by photographers that may not be household names, but who are mining rich territory famously explored by artists such as famed 1950s celebrity photographer Philippe Halsman in his Jumpology series and Alfred Hitchcock in 1958's Vertigo.
