yep, it’s been blogged about before and i don’t care. these intriguing, explosive photos from german born, london-based photographer holger pooten are making me insane. how do these objects defy gravity? and do all robotic cats look the same underneath?

holger has an impressive list of clients that includes adidas, vogue, neo2 and nike, but this is some of his personal work. this part right here would be where i explain how he created these enigmatic images, but after researching i haven’t come up with any answers. then again, is explanation really a requisite for sheer enjoyment?

see more examples of holger’s talents on his website.

    cool photos…

    hi dj,

    they are cool aren’t they? if you go look at holger’s portfolio on his website, you will see a lot of dynamic people shots, but it looks like these are the only three flying objects he has right now. hopefully he will make a few more!

    thanks for the visit!
