Photographs of People Leaning at Extreme Angles


Trees are much better than people at growing at extreme angles. That said, people can get pretty extreme too, as evidenced by Lean With It, a charming photo series from Chicago-based cool kid photographer Paul Octavious that we first spotted over at Colossal. We love the quiet absurdity of these photographs — Octavious finds trees growing naturally at weird angles, and photographs people mimicking their shape, sometimes leaning so far over that we can’t help but imagine the epic face-plant that must have come a split second after the photo was taken. Click through to check out a few photos from Octavious’ Lean With It series, and then be sure to head over to his website to see even more of his great work.
