“Deluge” Upper West Side 2010

  1. Great photo, Matt. One that makes you examine the entire photograph searching for an answer.

    Initial reaction…she only has one leg. Then the light clicks on and logic says she can’t possibly be walking on just one leg.

    Trick photography! And this works very well…the rain ads a dramatic effect…and her back pack perfect balances the side of her body where the leg is missing…and her head in lost in the shadows and appears virtually nonexistent.

  2. I have dozens of these one legged pictures and could almost make a book!
