1:10 / by rophoto

1:10 is a series of images shot while on a recent trip to Hong Kong and Beijing and Exhibited  last month @ C3 Contemporary  Art Space in Melbourne. I was interested in presenting some of these over-photographed, large open environments in ways not normally perceived/seen with the naked eye; establishing a dialogue between their factual/relative size and one’s “a priori” and “a posteriori” interpretation.

By manipulating the focal plane in reference to the scene an illusionary (shallow) depth of field is produced. This depth of field, usually associated with macro or close-up photography tricks the brain into thinking that the scene is much smaller than it actually is.
