Way of seeing

This photo by Arup Ghosh from India helped him win the Sony World Photography Award for Amateur Photographer of the Year in 2008

This photo is also separated into thirds, though a little more abstractly: the wall, the mirror, and the man himself, who is the subject. Like Frank’s photo, this picture moves your eye from left, where the subject is, to the right, where we can see what’s happening in the mirror. To me, the mirror manages to frame the whole picture, even though it is only enclosing the one scene. Each part of the picture sort of has its own section due to the mirror frame; similar to the windows of the bus of the photo we looked at.
