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

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

The big toe, arch, and lower heel of a left foot appear beneath the upper frame of a photograph. A water-filled latex balloon slips off the foot, forming a tear shape that dangles from the toe and connects with the rippling surface of blue water that dominates the composition.
