Closed / Open

                Attica, Indiana

Something, I rarely do is to face a subject straight on.  While a traditional composition for documentary work, find it produces a closed image.  No way for the viewer move, kind of a "in your face" way to present a subject.  

Here a viewer can "escape" by using the right side of the image.  Appearing closed, it is actually open allowing for the movement beyond the surface of the frame.

A closed image provides answers, while an open image will raise questions.

Prefer to challenge with questions, than provide answers.
