Eiffel Tower in Puddle

Posted in The Photography

One of the primary techniques of the surrealist is the shadow, and/or the reflection. Both are ways of transforming ordinary object, or extraordinary objects into distortions of themselves, or to have the realistic subjects resemble something coming up from the so-called sub-consciousness (as it was called then); but which is really just a form of […]

A Tale of Two Closets
