The Contortionist

There are plenty of ways to make a portrait unusual, but it’s almost as if a portrait of a contortionist is playing with different rules. I mean, let’s just look at what’s going on here. First, of course, you have the focal point – her face. That is the most normal part of this shot, not to mention the human brain is literally wired to seek out faces, so it is the natural focal point. But, there is a reflection of her face right below it, which gives this image an interesting dimension. That, combined with the perspective lent by this talented woman’s feet stretching towards the camera, give this portrait a kind of mechanical depth that few have. The cool blue hues top off this photo as a true work of art by photographer Ernesto Borges. Very nice!
