A beautifully timed shot – not a second too early, not a second too late.
Florida-based photographer David Taggart photographed this and called it “Ready to Fly” but once it took its rounds across the internet, the public soon renamed it “Metamorphosis”.
“The picture was captured in Valparaiso, Chile where I was photographing the city’s rich outdoor murals. As the man walked into the frame, I was unsure what the result would be. However, the moment yielded one of the most impactful and metaphorical images in all my years of shooting. To me, this image is the perfect convergence of man and art.”
