Attempts To Fly is a photo series by photographer Conan Thai in which he freezes people as they leap into the air.
This set features photos depicting figures in motion at heights trying to find transcendence within the normal humdrum of life. Each image serves as a record of the “attempt” to fly. This stems from my desire to not become a cog in the clockwork of the waking life but, as we grow older, the actions we take become habitual and ritualized. It becomes necessary to do so to streamline our activities and provide for a minimum of bumps in the road. In doing so, we neglect the paths that diverge and intersect our intended direction.
