Behind the Lens - Linear Perspective

This series of photographs illustrates the visual device known as linear perspective. Linear perspective is the impression of depth given by converging parallel lines and changes of subject scale between foreground and background elements.

Framing the road behind the motorists creates a feeling of depth and scale to this image. The visual device of linear perspective can help a two-dimensional photograph give the illusion of depth and scale.
