The hidden horseman, Acre, Israel, 2011

This large sculpture of the mythological winged horse Pegasus was on sale in Acre, just one of many figures in a yard full of ornamental décor for sale. What makes it incongruous is the rider, whose head is thrust deeply into an overhead palm tree. The classically draped rider not only looks backwards – it also seems to be lost in the greenery. I found such an incongruous juxtaposition amusing, and shot the picture from an angle that intensified the rider’s predicament.
