The mind’s subjugation of the body can be another ploy of the ego to keep us divided against the Self! Ego thrives on oppositions, so defeat of oppositions is the true letting go of ego.-David Richo, P.h.D
This photo manipulation is very well done and visually interesting. The image has a great deal of movement and resembles a disturbance in the individual similarly to ripples in water after the stillness is disturbed. It thrives in black and white because it takes on an edgy feel and the dark darks contrast nicely with the bright whites.
South Korean artist Seung-Hwan Oh's "Impermanence" depicts "the visual result of the symbiosis between film matter and organic matter." He takes developed portrait photos and immerses them in water containing microbes, sometimes for a year or more. The microbes cause the silver halides to destabilize, at which point he makes these stunning digital scans.
