Myth of the Flat Earth: Photos by John Clang
Conceptual photos of figures floating in an invisible pool as a metaphor for trying to meet society's high expectations.
A haunting icon and meditation of today's nerve-wrecked urban humanity, this photo series depict the desperate need to stay afloat—at all cost. A sense of paranoia pervades; even as the human figures tread on invisible waters in a pool three feet deep, constantly struggling to stay afloat, head above waters. Like them, we also strive ceaselessly to meet the high-water mark of society's expectations. In turn, these too have become the fatal waters we tread upon.
