Samuel Margalit The jump

This exploration was inspired by the work of Yves Klein. Here I attempted to re-imagine the famous photograph Le saut dans le vide, as well as Klein’s work with the colour International Klein Blue (IKB) in the form of a video incorporating Parkour. A series of photographs expands on the theme, with a suit as a linking element. An imprint of the suit in IKB completes the series. Parkour, a philosophy involving overcoming obstacles of any kind, allowed me to recapture the iconic shot without subsequent manipulation of the image.

Note: As a result of copyright problems, this work has been modified by replacing the soundtrack.
