This Drone-on-a-Leash is Hoping to Become the Aerial Photographer’s Best Friend

Aerial photography drones are more ubiquitous than ever. But as wonderful as they are for documenting the world around us from a bird's-eye view, they inherently come with a number of safety and regulatory issues.

Solving these woes in a creative and somewhat strange way is Sergei Lupashin, who has created a clever little device called the Fotokite. Essentially, he put the camera drone on a leash.

A Unique Medium: Photographs Printed on String

We've run into some cool ideas over the years -- most of them involving a new way of taking photos or an interesting mix of established photography techniques -- but Hong Sung Chul's work with photographs printed onto string is definitely different, if not unique. His choice of medium is said to represent our human connection to our mothers through an umbilical cord.

Check out the samples below and be sure to head over the Hada Contemporary Gallery for more examples his work.
