Ways of Seeing
This photograph was taken by Musa Nor Azmi. It shows many examples of division and separation. The paths diverging would be the most obvious one to find as it divides the grassy areas, which could symbolize decision-making in life. The person walking in the photo shows segments of time passing by as each step is captured. The element of line is used very effectively here. We see the repetition of trees that create vertical lines as well as the leaves that are dangling from the top. There are also horizontal lines where the grass ends in the distance and where the branches are overlapping. The lines and repetition in this photograph seem to give us a sense of rhythm as this person takes a walk in the park.
