B&W series edited on black background. Pictures taken during a summer competition with daring skaters from different parts of the world. The spectators hold their breath at each of their spin. For the skaters, only the instant of the jump and the next obstacle seem to exist. Nothing matters but for the adrenaline felt with each figure, the defying of gravity for fractions of seconds and seeing life through the sole lens of their skate.
