Did you know?

This photograph is composed of two shots taken one-half hour apart.


“Digital camera and computers,” says Larry Merrill, “are obsessive data keepers.” In looking at his files, the artist noticed that he first shot the marble head, and then thirty minutes later on the same day, photographed its reflection in the Plexiglas vitrine that protects the sculpture. Merrill combined the two images in Photoshop. In his depiction, the figure looks as if he is contemplating his own reflection.
