Photograph Of The Day

On May 22 1954, tightrope walkers Berthy Omankowsky and Roger Decugis married on a rope stretched high above the Place du Capitole in Toulouse, France. They were members of the Franco-Czechoslovakian Diables Blancs (White Devils) Company

Photographer Jean Dieuzaide recorded the event on his Rolleiflex while sitting on the shoulders of the bride’s father, Rudolf Omankowski, who was also balancing on a wire.
