Doug Dubois

The first thing to strike me about this photograph was the two dimensionality of the space. It seems entirely flat. Secondly, I was surprised by the precise arraignment of all the elements. It is so clean cut, that it is hard to believe that the dinosaur is actually flying and the cild is still in motion. The balance between the blue bottle on the right and the soup holder, as well as the child's eyes and the dinosaur is uncanny. Just as stated by the article, it is a "tension so exact that it is peace." The simplicity and just plain regularity of the subject here is a perfect example of the photography discussed in the article. The subject has no deeper significance then the "pretext for the making of color photographs."
