  1. I have no idea what I’m looking at – a pillow in the bottom of a hole on black sand beach, at night – but I love it.

  2. Ditto what Matt said. I this directly out of camera?

  3. unfortunatley I see the end of a digestive system. Help me see it in another way :o(

  4. The way the obviously sculptured form emerges from seemingly natural swirls is excellent. I keep wanting it to be just slightly lighter but that is purely my ‘visual index’. Picking up on Christina’s point, I did wonder before seeing her remark how the title plays out: are you looking through V2 to see V1 or is it a PS montage? Whichever way, it works very well. As to what it is, what does it matter – it is a sculpture; and can evidently be a digestive system if that is how it is interpreted! In which case it could be seen as a premier cru Bordeaux – or the beginnings of indigestion!

  5. I cannot get past my initial reaction (sorry for that) but still intrigued by this one.

  6. I’ll go along with the ‘no idea’ crowd.

    I’m sure that this would be a conversation piece on a gallery wall (thank you, Robert), but I’m not getting past the ‘what is it?’ question.

  7. It is two images taken on a tripod where the only change made is focal point. The sculptures are both called Vortex (from memory as I cannot get any brochure) and they differ slightly. They both have holes in the centre. I positioned the tripod & camera to view one from the hole in the other. The result is close to what I had in mind, Vortex 1 as a frame for Vortex 2.

    As with many of my pictures, opinion can be strongly divided!

  8. Or even the other way round :-)

  9. Brilliant effect. So, a double exposure, or combined in Photoshop?

    I’m sometimes jealous of digital photographers that can make double exposures in camera — some Nikon digital cameras that capability.

  10. No idea what I am looking at which really adds to the enjoyment of the presentation. It does have a certain biological feel to it which gives though hard edges deep in a softer feel.

    In passing, my ‘old’ Pentax *istD can do in-camera double exposure.
