Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I was inspire by an old photograph from the 1930’s of the men working on building the skyscrapers of Manhattan, we’ve all seen the images, a coupe of guys sat eating their lunch on a narrow girder 300 metres in the air, the ease and confidence they exude as if what they are doing is perfectly normal, just a regular Monday at work. During this period I was working a lot with acrobats and dancers, so the idea formed in my mind to forge these two worlds together and so the ‘Jeopardy’ project was born. I have always been fascinated by people who work with their bodies, the grace, power and skill is incredible to witness up close and so to put this in a context of such immediate danger is to heighten these skills even more. We rehearsed some positions beforehand and then shot the series in the space of one afternoon and i couldn’t be more happy with the results, I think the balance of physical confidence, beauty and jeopardy all fuse together to make a truly unique series of photographs.
