Tipping Point

04.03.2016

Los-Angeles based photographer Mike Dempsey loves to create startling, gravity-defying photographs of surreal moments. Mike photographs his brave friends willingly falling off stairs, being suspended mid-air or riding bicycles dangerously on roofs. To capture these perilous yet spectacular photographs of ‘anticipation’ and ‘risk’, he uses an intervalomenter to take multiple shots and Photoshop for post-production work. Mike says that he is inspired by ‘moving’ images in skate videos and magazines and aims to create a similar effect in his photography.
