La Chute (The Fall) series
Gelatin-silver print on aluminium
Employing no digital effects, this fascinating series captures hip hop and capoeira dancers suspended in mid-air, like modern-day fallen angels. The figures portrayed in the act of leaping are metaphors for the energy and existential instability of young people in the suburbs.
