Surreal Photos of Women Floating in Zero Gravity by Nikolay Tikhomirov

Moscow-based photographer Nikolay Tikhomirov describes the photographs he’s taken as “art inside me” — and that’s just what they are, art.

One of his collections, dubbed ‘Zero Gravity‘ is series of images featuring women in Earthly environments floating as if they’ve escaped the confines of our planet’s gravity. Some appear to be well aware of their surroundings, whilst others are seemingly in the midst of a slumber, oblivious to their dream-like condition.

Quite obviously, some level of manipulation is likely involved to achieve such remarkable creations, though it’s unclear just what Tikhomirov does specifically to achieve such effects. These images aren’t the first of their kind. Many photographers have created the illusion of floating subjects in their shots.

Simply put, snapping this type of image involves the layering and masking of multiple photographs of the same scene and lighting in order to hide the support device that is propping up the picture’s subject. The complexity varies depending on the scene – but this at least gives you some indication as to how you yourself can try to replicate zero gravity. Here’s one of many tutorials available.

For more of Tikhomirov’s inspiring work, you can view his 500px and 35Photo galleries.
