He Drowned in Her Eyes as she Called him to Follow [Anatomy: Green]

Close up of He Drowned in Her Eyes as she Called him to Follow [Anatomy: Green]

A photograph shot at ground level captures an extreme close-up of a heel and ankle from behind. Enclosed in a clear latex balloon filled with viscous green liquid that distorts its shape, the foot rests upon a floor of tiny, square, white tiles, like those used in bathrooms.
