Photographer's Note

Taken during a visit to Glasgow's Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, I was intrigued by a permanent display in the main hall by the artist, Sophie Cave, called "Floating Heads". This is a collection of fifty hanging head sculptures, each displaying a different facial expression and all cast in white, though they are variously illuminated by different coloured lights as they freely rotate on their suspension cords.

As I watched these heads I was aware of a young boy watching me with my camera and I was happy to click the shutter as a "laughing" head seemed to turn around to look at him.

You can read more about the "Floating Heads" installation here.

ISO 800, 1/13 sec at f/5.6, focal length 40mm.
