It is a common practice to rotate images in order to
study their composition. Some images appear as if they
were meant to be seen upside down. Like this one,
taken in Helsinki during Spring 2001.
I flip the photograph vertically in Photoshop. The
cityscape is out of order, buildings take the place of
the sky and vice versa. Her position becomes
unsettling. The gesture of reaching up turns into
hanging down, almost at the verge of falling.
