sea screen, originally uploaded by JuliaVHendrickson.

I'm starting to really love seeing things through screens, especially the human form. There's an odd sort of pixelation about the image, except the pixels are actually part of the physical dimensions of what is in the photograph. I love how the foreground focus forces the image into abstraction, but because the color and basic shape are still there, the content is still legible. In this photograph, essentially you're reading color first (brown of the screen, the ocean), and then shape (the wooden bar, the two figures walking). The loss of depth is fascinating, too. You're forced to immediately look beyond, into the background, without completely being sure what it is you're looking at.
