- In Michael Massaia's photo series "The Pull," the ocean and sky are flipped
- The inverted perspective comes from the ground glass on his large-format camera
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."
Massaia said shooting in black and white allowed him to capture "huge amounts of information" while producing a sense of timelessness. Because of this, his images are rich in both texture and meaning.
