The Hypnotic Power of Perspective
When we open our eyes, we see the world in perspective. That means: we are the center like the center of a pre-Galilei universe, and all things revolve around us.
It is a human experience to be at the center of one's world. If you recreate this individual universe in photography, built to an individual point of view that sits in the center, the experience will be powerful.
It's not a given. Even though the camera takes a picture in a perfect perspective where all lines meet in one point, it is not the same thing as the experience point of view.
Example: when you look at descriptive pictures, you will always see the object (houses, cars, jewelry, books) from a somewhat removed and neutral perspective. It shows a general view that is quickly recognizable for everyone.
Individual and experience point of view: if we experience something we go close to things and people. Often we go really close, and things and people are visible only in part. This can lead to strange and puzzling shapes. An open puzzle. An invitation to solve it and involve yourself in.
This becoming a creative part in the picture is what is so attractive and involving in subjective perspective.
This experience point of view pulls us in where the descriptive point of view keeps us at a distance. We love to be engaged and be involved by taking what is shown, and completing the picture in our mind.
Which is why the subjective perspective is always the more powerful one.
