Reality Blurred Norman Soskel
USA

Nominee

"Reality Blurred"
In this image, "Blurred Reality", the only component that is "real" are the two white street bumps. The rest of the image consists of reflections. Photographers frequently photograph by looking out or looking in. In his 1978 monograph "Mirrors and Windows" John Szarkowski separated historical photographs into two groups, "Windows", in which the photographer was looking out at the world, and "Mirrors", in which the photographer was looking in, i.e. more introspective. It is up to the viewer to decide in which category "Blurred Reality" belongs.
