This book, and this image in particular, really blew my mind away when I first saw it in my school library. It was so good that I contemplated stealing from the library. This is one picture, but it looks like Peress had pieced four different pictures into one. This is his genius at work. Many after him have tried the same approach and failed. I like to call this a photograph of confusions.
