Tilt-shift: Questioning Reality

Share via AddThis

The world is a very strange place.

As children, we’d thought of the world as huge and almost endless; that we were very small creatures in a gigantic space. However, the rapid development of modern technology and social media have changed that impression. We can easily meet people who live in distant countries; we conduct conference calls via Skype; and we can view faraway lands at any photography website.

Even when we travel to other countries, we are never totally separated from the people we care about back home, thanks to all the messages, pictures and life events we can share on Facebook, in email, or via video chats. Distances are rapidly becoming shorter. The feeling that the world is really tiny gets stronger every day; with today’s media, our planet is spread out right before our eyes. It’s getting so small and so familiar that we start wondering: Is it all real? Is it still the world of dangers, adventures and the unknown, or it is just a toy story captured by tilt-shift lenses?..
