Inflatable Planet by Addi Somekh
A balloon artist and photographer travel the world surprising people with improvised, inflatable crowns and offer a deep view into the nature of joy.
The simple act of twisting a balloon for a complete stranger can make people instant friends. This idea animated balloon artist Addi Somekh and photographer Charlie Eckert to improvise balloon crowns for unsuspecting people throughout 35 countries and document their reactions. Part photography book, part sociological study, part spontaneous party, Inflatable Planet features over 200 photos from this international experiment in joy.
