When *JacquiJax suggested this photography to me she wrote, "Really expressive and well done, the colors leave you breathless and the silhouette is well done and has great shape and movement! At first sight it makes you feel that he is falling to planet earth :) Amazing!" I couldn't agree more! and then he fell... by ~give-up, with a simple flip of the image, takes a beautifully done, quirky silhouette and makes it something extraordinary. Now instead of leaping, the model is losing connection with the earth. I can see a lot of possibly interpretations of this photo, which makes it great because there is always more to find visually and creatively within the piece. DEFINITELY definitely check out the rest of this deviant's gallery. You won't be disappointed.

and then he fell...

the man...

toward the heights of the tower of ivory he climbed,
rising on his waxen wings;
aiming for the heavens,
he swore to make great his name.

a plan both great in aim and folly,
for divinity is not in accomplished feat.

the crux...

his young body tired, he anxiously gasped for air
as the staples of his wings weakened.

earthen bricks,
the foundation of his civilization,
of his tower, of reason,
began to corrupt and crumble.

the fall...

alas, progress refused to come with his struggles.
one last futile pump of the crude wings,
and he tore them from his back.

amidst the agony and fear, for an instant,
he lay completely still. peace.
and then he fell...
