Illusions of Distance
These can be anything from poetic to comedic or even crass, as the
above images demonstrate. Almost always such shots are staged, but
sometimes in public you might catch just the right elements in
alignment to create an accidental masterpiece of art or humor. Impossible People and Animals
these can be silly or sublime, depending upon the subject, but almost
inevitably result in a confused double-take. We all know what people
can and can’t do, how they are built, what the limits of the human body
are, yet some images challenge the brain and create illusions. The Art of Juxtaposition
a set of objects, people and/or animals behaving normally independently
can take on a new life entirely when properly juxtaposed in a picture.
What might seem like very ordinary behavior, from grabbing a magazine
to stretching for a job, can take on a new and strange meaning when
captured on film from just the right angle.
