Where: Matsumoto Japan
Between Meeting: Waiting for Taxi
I was waiting for a taxi to take me from my hotel in Matsumoto to Epson’s main office in Hirooka. I spotted an interesting connection between the red stripes of a traffic barrier and a red square across the street. When people walked by, depending on an individual’s gait, I noticed an illusion where a person’s ankles seemed in the wrong position due to the chevron shape on the barrier
I made a series of exposures as people walked by. This image best illustrated the illusion.
