Mirror #3: Parting the crowds

visitors at British Museum It was a relief to escape into the cool of the British Museum’s marbled halls. Stumbling into Room 24 I just happened upon the  ‘Living & Dying’ exhibition, drawn more to the lighting than the message:

People throughout the world deal with the tough realities of life in many different ways. The displays explore different approaches to our shared challenges as human beings, focussing on how diverse cultures seek to maintain health and well-being.

Stealing souls was not mentioned and though I hesitate to point my camera at people, there was so much photographing of everything around, that I followed suit.

The problem with people en masse is the ever-changing chaotic patterning and lack of framing opportunities but yet there are ideal moments of grouping. Thus when I mirror imaged the shot, what emerged in parting these crowds was a spatial symmetry that could almost have been directed. [#mirrormirror]
