I look at photos all day, every day, and whether it’s images from my own work or pictures from other photographers, I absolutely love what I do. Sometimes, after a few grueling weeks of editing, I find myself in a steady rhythm of image-looking. Then, I find an image like this one and suddenly I feel my brain churning harder as I try to comprehend the visual language. Here, photographer Albert Ting takes advantage of the image’s natural, compositional mystery and rotates the frame, causing more confusion and intrigue.
Ting has several images from the opening of Dupont Underground—an abandoned trolley station under Dupont Circle—that has been turned into an exhibition space.
