Today over on Nowness, a short film directed by photographer/filmaker David Ryle entitled 'Skihopp' which focuses on the rituals and obsession at Oslo's Holmenkollen ski jump. As David explains over at Nowness:
'"Ski jumpers in Norway start out when they're three or four years old," says British photographer and filmmaker David Ryle. "There are so many ski jumps – or hills as they're called – it is so natural for them growing up." His meditative film is centered on two young, dedicated jumpers in Oslo, Jonas Schøien Øvsegård and Jorgen Madsen, and the rules and routine they adhere to at the notorious Holmenkollen ski jump. "It's all about religiously going through a certain process that they trust. They're flying 140 meters in the air and yet are super-nonchalant with a laissez-faire attitude," says Ryle.'
