Paris-based photographer Alban Grosdidier’s newest photo series, Drowning, likens the suffocating feeling of being submersed under water to living in a big city.
Who amongst us hasn’t felt that way on time or another - trapped, over whelmed and left gasping for air.
Huge installations of the photographs first appeared outside along the borders of the river Seine in January 2012.

Imaginings of a space program.
In 1964, a Zambian grade-school science teacher single-handedly, and unilaterally, created a space program for his country. The program involved rolling aspiring astronauts down a hill in a barrel and clipping their rope-swings at the height of their arc to simulate weightlessness. He claimed his country would not only beat both the Americans and Russians to the moon, but do it within the year.
Today, Spanish photographer Cristina De Middel‘s photo project, Afronauts, creates a fictional documentation of these efforts. The result is a fact-bending, visually striking fantasy that includes elephant-hugging astronauts, patterned space junk, weightless cats and an engineer day-dreaming at a rusted control panel.
“My intention is to drive the audience into reflection on what they consume as real,” says De Middel. “In the beginning most people believed everything [in the photos] was real. People asked if I had been in Zambia in the ’60s. They trusted the image but not me, which is quite funny.”
