Podlesnik's photographs (reproduced with his permission from Almost Seeing) are of particular interest because (despite appearances) they were not constructed in Adobe Photoshop by sandwiching multiple layers. Nor are they double exposures. They are simply single frame, through the lens camera shots, by which he makes astonishing use of light, shadow and reflections.
Norwood R. Hanson in Patterns of Discovery. Cambridge University Press, 1958—
Seeing is an experience. A retinal reaction is only a physical state… People, not their eyes, see. Cameras, and eyeballs, are blind…there is more to seeing than meets the eyeball.
