A Visual Exploration on Perspective

All the meanings of perspective have something to do with looking. If you observe the world from a dog’s perspective, you see through the dog’s eyes. In drawing, perspective gives your drawing the appearance of depth or distance. If we say someone “has perspective,” we mean she has a sensible outlook on life.

We were recently moved by Suzanne Saroff’s photographs that explore perspective. Her series visually represents the concept by using water and glass to warp the appearance of vibrantly colored fruits, lobsters, cabbages, and other flora and fauna.

From relationships to politics, it is always important to remember, the only thing you sometimes have control over is perspective.
