From Benezir Wehelie’s review of Michael Massaia’s series, “The Pull: Inverted Seascapes,” for CNN Photos:
When we think of the ocean and the sky, our minds often conjure up universal images of waves flowing together, of clouds moving across the blue vastness above us.
But Michael Massaia shows us something much different.
For his photo series “The Pull,” Massaia printed images of the ocean and the sky as they appeared — inverted and backward — on the ground glass of his large-format camera.
“I was searching for a way to present that type of subject in a new way,” Massaia said. “To reintroduce yourself to something you’ve been looking at for years and to see it in a whole new way.”
