In this funny stock picture a flying trapeze artist is about to catch (or not) a sumo wrestler! After having the opportunity to photography some flying trapeze artists at the San Francisco School of Circus Arts, I realized that the concepts of risk and challenge might be even better portrayed by having the performer attempting to capture someone who was obviously overweight. At the same time, i did not want to offend people who have weight problems. I pondered this problem for months before it suddenly dawned on me that if I used a Sumo wrestler I could not only emphasize the enormous weight difference, but do so without offending an entire group of people. We accept that Sumo wrestlers have made the concious decsion to be heavy. It is a proud sport too, with lots of tradition and a long and storied history. Using the Sumo wrestler in the flying trapeze setting adds an overt humor, lends impact and the absurd, and creates a more compelling image. The sumo wrestler drives the point home and makes a far more memorable and effect stock photo. I turned the a Sumo wrestling associaton to find a sumo wrestler. He is indeed an authentic Sumo wrestler, and while he look menacing (and wieghed over 300 pounds) he was fun to work with and enthusiastic about our project. I photographed the flying trapeze artist at the San Francisco School for Circus Arts. I photographed our sumo wrestler in my studio. I then used photoshop to composite the various elements, including the sky I used for the background, into my image. The final stock picture uses the unexpected to dramatically illustrate concepts such as risk, challenge, the bizarre, the impossible, skill and optimism.
