Photo Feature By Larry K. Martin

Outjumping the Jumpers

During his trips to Africa, artist Larry K. Martin met Maasai tribesmen who could jump very high from a dead start. Jumping is part of their dancing ritual. Martin went home with his digital pictures of the jumpers, Photoshopped his own image into the dance, wherein he appeared to be jumping higher than the best of them, and then gave a copy to the Maasai men on his next trip. Last photo below shows their reaction.
