Two things are great about this photo. First of all – the black and white editing makes it more vivid than if it was colored. Lack of color denotes simplicity just like photography should be defined – art and beauty through simple immortalized acts of life. The second important aspect of this work is the composition. We are taken into a period from the past – we see some sort merchant (from one point of view), a privileged one – who knows better what’s important about her activity. Rustic outfit, accessories – and you’re already in another country. I almost had an out-of-body experience trying to decipher the messages this simple photo offers. Indeed – the author is a great artist.
