Looking Left

As in other photographs in this series, a black granite building with a smooth polished surface counter-intuitively served as the source of this reflection.

The granite also accounts for the appearance of a dense atmosphere or snow which brings the image to the picture surface for a decidedly two-dimensional emphasis. Yet the figures challenge that emphasis as they move toward the viewer. This tension between two- and three-dimensional space seems to be  present in all photographs of reflections. It can be an animating underpinning, lending a sense of urgency to an arrested moment. At least that is what I hoped for here.
