I
randomly stumbled on this the other day and it kinda blew me away. A 16-year old kid called Natalie Kucken, photographed this series. It was inspired by this quote from the book, The Lovely Bones.

and my father would take the thin cotton top sheet
and bunch it up in his hands while being careful to
keep the two corners between his thumb and forefinger.
then he would snap it out so the pale sheet would spread
out like a parachute above buckley and gently, what felt
wonderfully slowly, it would waft down and touch along
his exposed skin- his knees, his forearms, his cheeks and
chin. both air and cover somehow there in the same
space at the same time- it felt like the ultimate freedom
and protection.

-the lovely bones

What a talent.
