Most traditional depictions of the resurrection of Jesus feature Christ facing the viewer as He emerges from the tomb. Reicher goes against this convention by changing the viewpoint. Jesus has His back to the viewer, and the viewer has to "look up" up toward Jesus as He ascends the steps toward the light that marks the exit of the tomb.
I find Reicher's non-traditional viewpoint quite captivating. In addition to the dramatic effect, the image "feels" much closer to the core of Jesus's mission -- he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life . . .
