Comedy of errors


Ralph Klewitz

This photograph was an attempt to take a picture of my ear canal when it was sore.  I tried to control my smartphone in front of a mirror, using a flash. During the couple of minutes that I allocated for this task, I was not able to adjust the camera angle properly, hence, I was not able to look into my ear. Moreover, the focussing caused me some trouble, as the camera needed to be further away.

When taking the picture, the squared ceiling lamp on the the male toilet accidentally got in focus, suggesting a foreign object floating above my ear. The subject matter, composition and overall aesthetic captured my attention in a strange way.
