EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a mesmerizing moment of levitation during the Jubilee Gala Day held at the Laing Sports Ground in Elstree, Barnet, Greater London. The illusionists Van Buren and Greta are seen defying gravity as they perform their act of levitation with grace and precision. The image showcases the incredible skill and showmanship of these talented entertainers, who effortlessly suspend themselves in mid-air while surrounded by an enthusiastic crowd. The vibrant atmosphere of the festival can be felt through the joyful expressions on people's faces, creating a sense of excitement and wonder. As part of the Breaking New Ground Project in partnership with the John Laing Charitable Trust, this photograph offers a glimpse into a bygone era when such spectacles were eagerly anticipated by audiences. It serves as a testament to both the enduring popularity of magic acts and the rich history of community events at sports grounds. The illusionists' use of hula hoops adds an extra layer of intrigue to their performance, showcasing their mastery over not only levitation but also other magical skills. This image is a testament to their artistry and ability to transport spectators into a world where anything seems possible.
