Hop-hopping brings together some of these photographs, comprising a volume that is an artwork itself. Images from all periods and genres that, nevertheless, have something in common: In all of them there are feet that have lost - or are just about to loose - contact with the ground. In all of them there are people raising a leg or jumping in the air or balancing or on top of something. All of them feature someone - or something - that seems to be ready to take off.
