On 16 August 1960 at 07:00, Joseph Kittinger, kitted up in a pressurized suit and parachute, stood 32 km above the New Mexico desert, on the edge of space, racing upwards in an open gondola attached to a hot air balloon.

Then… he stepped out and for the next 13 minutes 45 seconds he fell to earth. He traveled at speeds approaching 614 mph breaking the sound barrier and reaching terminal velocity.

His story has inspired the creation of 'Man High', a specially commissioned film and music piece that's the result of a collaboration between Stephen Deazley, Martin Parker and Andy McGregor.
