The Gravity

Serie

Photography & design collaboration between Juarth Leihitu & Kie-Gwan Leihitu.

How we started

A little side project experiment that grew into a serie of unusual photography manipulation in different cities.
My brother Juarth Leihitu and myself were trying to come up with side projects to keep us motivated and creative in world of design and photography.

We got our inspiration from the Final Fantasy: Spirits WIthin. It contained a scene where there’s a girl standing on top water. As if you would be watching someone from underwater. Of course this was a cgi scene but the angle was unusual and interesting.

We came to thinking, What if we could do this with real life objects.
Not only we’d had to think of a solution, we’d also have to execute it. After finding a good spot to photograph, we we’re struggling how to fix this. We did this with a lot of try and error but eventually managed to give life to our project.

For us trying to find this sideproject was something that gave a spark in the possibilities of creating stuff. It helped us motivate and inspire us to do more stuff because it made us happy.
