Robin from Fisheye Placebo looking melancholic in the city night. I wanted her eyes to resemble the fisheye lens of her camera. Many people think photography objectively captures reality, but that couldn't further from the truth. A photographer can only capture the reality he/she chooses to see through. The types of lenses used, what's included vs excluded in the photo, camera settings, and countless other things can alter the feeling a photo gives off, and thus reinterpreting the reality seen through the lens.

Gorgeous! And I completely agree with what you said in the description. I also think it applies to most forms of art. Artist draw, paint, write, and photograph what they see from their perspective and since no one actually has an impeccable perspective of everything, when you're looking at someone's art, you're seeing their own perspective and reality.
