Jeanne Dunning, "Deep Hole"
"Deep Hole" by Jeanne Dunning is a multi-dimensional photograph that explores the art of scaled proportions. The focal point, the dark hole in the center, is created by spiraling or curving of what seems to be fingers or a hand making a fist. However, the blurred edges of the front and then the focusing of the skin as the "hole" gets deeper gives the feeling of movement and depth. It also looks as though someone is "looking" through the "hand". At the same time the proportion of the hand is distorted because of the blurred and clarity--to me the hand looks larger and longer.
