Yowayowa Camera Woman
The yowayowa camera woman is Natsumi Hayashi. A Japanese photographer who specialises in self-portraits with a difference. The difference is, is that she appears to be levitating in each and every one. I love the fact that although it is obvious she is performing a perfectly timed jump to achieve this effect, it looks so natural that you can almost believe she is able to levitate. I'm also amazed that if these really are self-portraits, how she has managed to avoid having her Canon EOS 5D MkII stolen. Apparantly yowayowa is Japanese for "weak" or "feeble" but she seems the opposite to me. You can see more from Natsumi at her website. As always, click to enlarge.
