But we make do, slicing the frisbee through the diagonal kite strings, curving it around passersby, catching it of course in any number of wildly impressive ways- through our legs (but not like some fribee weenie), behind the back (while jumping, half twisting, left to right), and after tipping it, two, three, four times, taming it, slowing it to a weak spin, retiring it for the one-fingered catch. We are so good. Everyone thinks so.”

Guy Sargent’s undeniably atmospheric long-term project ‘What lies beneath’ studies both man made and natural structures. He has a knack for making even central plazas and famous landmarks seem as isolated as some of his landscape shots with each photo exuding an almost eerie calm.
