Synopsis

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.
