The power of scale

THE JUXTAPOSITION OF SMALL AND LARGE CAN CREATE A POWERFUL PERSPECTIVE

Shot in the Atlas mountains this image of a small store standing precariously on the edge of a mountain road creates a sense of isolation while accentuating the vastness of the Atlas mountains behind .

By shooting from above, using a long lens to increase the sense of perspective and positioning the store in the bottom left-hand corner, the viewer is left marvelling at the scale and dominance of the mountains towering over the store and its owner.
