I do have issues with this work. I don't know if I am really challenged enough by the images or if I am falling prey to a pretty picture. Finding things in the enviornment to photograph, not constructing a scene or portrait, is something that I admire in an artist. Perhaps that is what I find most appealing about this work. The fact that Tobia can photograph a variety of places and subjects and draw visually striking similarities from them.
Double Blue with Feet
The image above, double blue with feet, also makes me think that the top image is somehow a view beneath the bottom image's sidewalk. I know that it isn't, but the images that are like this make me think of time and space warps, so that in some way these things are happening at the same time in relatively the same space. That someone somewhere sees the world in this weird transparent way. I don't think that is the artists intent, but it is fun to consider.
