Outside the Spice Warehouse

Outside the Spice Warehouse


A re-edit of this photo brings revisions to the crop and thus the composition as well as to the colour and tonality and it shows that there are so many alternative ways of presenting a photo while still retaining the essential truths of the scene. Not just that, but there is a change of meaning when the relationship of the parts and the arrangement of spaces is changed. In this scene the new revision brings to the fore the relationship of the three men, whereas in the first version the relationship is between the men and the building.

The posture of the man on the right is odd. He looks as if he has been wheeled into position. In fact he could be about to fall off his trolly.
