One Single Contemporary Photograph.

Image by Ryan Mcginley.

I first saw this photograph when I dropped a magazine which opened at the exact page the image was featured (IT WAS A SIGN!)). I love that it lacks in distractions (Lack of colour/patterned backgrounds etc) yet can remain so detailed in the subject matter. The contrast of textures within the subjects appeals to me too. I find something different to look at every time I view the photo even though it's so straight forward.

  1. Yes, what an interesting image. Do you know what was the context or brief for this image? Is it selling something? Which magazine did you see it in? I think a lot of the contextual information will help in understanding the image. But, still, compelling and good writing about it.
