Eye contact

Two weeks ago we enjoyed the Kampen Art Route, a 2-day tour to explore the various artists our new home town has to offer. This photograph, one of my favourites of the year so far, is a close-up of a paper sculpture by Elsa Visser. From a composition point of view, the important characteristics here are the use of negative space and the golden ratio (placement of the eye on a golden ratio focal point).
