Two images by the intriguing Stephan C Archetti of the incomparable Michael Caine.

Archetti, plays with thirds and balance here in a way that I find remarkable. We know that we read images - our eyes darting from the left to the right and spending time where the most intrinsic weight is deposited. Asymmetry pulls us against the weight just enough to hold everything in balance. What I enjoy about Archetti's images of Caine is that I become conscious of this reading when I view these. I can feel my eyes moving. The wide angle creates a sort of optical gymnasium - there is no rest here.
