The Girl above the City by Kim Bender

The world outside is reflecting on the mannequin in a window display. It looks like two photographs are sandwiched together, but it’s only one.

    That’s a really good photo, I thought it was a montage at first.

  • I know it looks like that. Actually all the photos are not! I paid close attention to light, shadow and reflection. Check it out on a sunny day. :))

    Great use of layers Kim, and your treatment of them, magic touch.Robin.

  • Hi Robin, it is and was from the beginning only one photograph. There are no layers. I photographed the display of a window with it’s reflection (in this case the buildings on the other side of the street) with my analog camera. Thanks for your comment. :)

    I did a series of mannequin photos – the only problem was the funny looks from passers by!

  • LOL, that true! Or the question “what are you photographing” (with that funny look( you talked about) in their face as if something is wrong with you), but when I let them see what I saw they were impressed……:))

    She has the perfect pose for being a goddess in the sky, and given our current world situation, that Crossroads right in the middle has a new significance too! As for the disgruntled passers-by, if you start taking THEIR picture, I bet they’ll move right along!

  • Thank you so much!!!……………love your interpretation!!!!
