Mike Dempsey’s photographs show a hilarious take on the small inconveniences associated with gravity.

Based in Los Angeles, California, Mike Dempsey is a skilled photographer specializing in a unique range of conceptual work. With some inspiration from skateboarding, his portfolio includes numerous images of people in everyday situations who seem to struggle with some inconveniences of gravitation. No worries, nobody was really injured. The following scenes of accidents are just the result of his photographic skills and the use of the right technology. You may think it’s mostly the result of Photoshop, but actually 90% is done without any retouching witchcraft. In a recent interview Mike Dempsey explained that he’s using an intervalometer, a camera attachment that controls shutter intervals over a certain period. This tool gives him the possibility to capture multiple frames each time his subject jumps. Just have a look at the selection below.
