I applied a circular effect to this photo because it made it look like the woman was sitting on her own little planet. It reminded me of Saint-Exupéry’s Little Prince, a prisoner on an asteroid no bigger than a house. The press is always announcing the discovery of new planets, while astronomers continue to debate the finite and infinite nature of the universe. At this time of winter, when night skies are clear and full of stars, I find it disconcerting to look at the sky and try to understand its magnitude. Why think about something so vast when we’re not even capable of looking into what’s going on inside ourselves? It’s not a good idea to ignore what is happening in our inner world, because there will be time enough in the future to think about the stars and explore the universe.
