Matt Nuzzaco, Very Large Array, New Mexico
Rückenfigur (awesome Flickr group | Tumblr tag) are those photographs or paintings of a person’s back in a landscape or composition. Mr. Nuzzaco’s photograph has another layer, which exploits the photographic “mistake” of having something in the background grow out of the subject’s head.
Wondering: is there is a word for utilizing background / foreground confusion? Because you can’t see the face in Rückenfigur, I always call it something-head. In this photograph, it’s the satellite dish-head. The are of course tree-heads, pole-heads, sign-heads, etc.
