Q: double Exposure portrait

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

This shot was taken at North Seoul Tower in Seoul, South Korea. The tower offers a brilliant view of the massive city, as well as a sense of where you are looking in light of the rest of the world. I could not help but think that this man was staring out at the city, reflecting on what it has become in it's modern time. Perhaps it's just that I've been reading a lot of George Orwell and some Ray Bradbury lately, but I could not help but imagine him being sad about the emphasis on image, perfection, and success at any cost that the city values. The photo seems nearly fictional to me. I shot it on a Nikon D300. I purposefully gave it a darker exposure to emphasize the shadows.
