A caricature artist in lively Insadong in Seoul, an area popular with tourists and locals. It was hard to frame the subject of the caricature, a little girl, but luckily she was in the field of vision of the artist's glasses.

Thats absolutely stunning Justin!! Wow, you have got a wondershot, I must say one of your finest works. Its appropriate to provide the title as "Field of Vision". This is arts, a way of expression, a way of unfolding. Who could had thought of capturing the subject's subject and through the corner of the eye?
Creativity at its best.
I love the concept, the idea behind the shot..
What an idea Dear.

This a clever point of view and it makes a good composition. I love the left part with the face of the artist and the FACE reflected in the glasses ! This is really excellent and not a simple shoot as we used to see here like the ones taken on the Place du Tertre in Montmartre.
This photo should have more comments ! TE is really dead ... Good to have you here Justin ...

A picture which really reveals itself in the opening of the thumbnail.
The drawing and the title attracted my curiosity... So what a great surprise to discover the real face of the little girl in the glasses !
A wonderful idea, and of course a perfect achievement.
Creative work, compliments.

This is great! It's an original and smart composition that is almost like a puzzle. We only see the girl's face in the glasses of the artist, as well as in his drawing. You had a sharp eye and an artistic mind to capture this image.

So surprised to see the little girl's image in the artist's glasses. So clever especially with the arms of the glasses only blocking her forehead. Cheers, Marlene

TE choruses of appraisal are not as crowded nowadays as they were in the past, but this photo deserves such a chorus indeed. I was not expecting to see the face on the lens. Quite a joke for tonight :)

Ahha! To experience the effort that goes in to the art you need to get up close - the closer the better!
So much fun being there at the time! Hearing the nibs as they work the paper.. The sound of the scratches of the pens creating their scribbles.
Really like the shot - very close!
Hope you like the workshop!

I am kind of exhausted after a long, stressful move and I am slowly trying to resume my commenting activity here on TE - but the boxes and the suitcases beckon me to open them and sort them out... ;)
I like many of your recent Korea shots but I think I will start with this one - that little face in one of the spectacle lenses really intrigues me, it's like a thumbnail of the portrait to be.
it is always interesting to see how the usual elements of a photo can be arranged in one way or another and how that difference makes the better shot. for me the main elements here are the eyes and the faces, which are recurring in different ways throughout the composition. the angle you chose makes them really work together.
did you try a b/w version? I think it would have worked nice here, maybe insisting on the contrast to emphasize the lines of the drawing.
