Levitating portrait are often appreciated, because bring to mind the flight, the possibility of escape from the rules of gravity and magic or super heroes.

In the past, when talking about levitation, the connection was with religion; nowadays, in the web era, levitation is related to creative photography. On websites like Flickr, DeviantArt, Lomography is possible to find photos with levitating people or objects (It's important to remember that on Lomography website pictures are just analogue, shoot on 35mm or 120mm, on the contrary in the other two sites there are also digital photos and photo manipulations). However, recently, this concept has begun more and more popular when Natsumi Hayashi shared her collection of photos where she looks almost like a superheroine who flies around Tokyo. Her pictures have become very popular in the Chinese network, and a girl from Beijing, Cong Lin, inspired by Natsumi Hayashi began her series of levitating portraits. Her album motivated others Chinese photographers to try levitating portrait. The idea of "Free Running" which reproduces the dream and magic is increased in the Chinese network and there are more people that experiment this kind of photos.
