Daily Deviation

Given 2013-09-21
fairytale by *Batsceba The powerful composition enhances the contrast between the woman and the reality inside the place, and the ones outside it. Suggestive image capable of conveying a story. ( Suggested by Ikarisou and Featured by myraincheck )
:icongianpaologalasi:
The use of light, midtones and blacks, their perfect balance gives the silhouette a deepness tnat kind of deliver her from her social position she's also symbolically showing. Few objects dominate the environment leaving the gave an apparent freedom to wander, and the photo can be integrated into a great tradition of social consciously portraiture coming from the U.S., a moral and ethics atmosphere so particular you don't find elsewhere in the world. No false morality or ambiguous attempt to distinguish the figure, that is human for what she does thanks also to the perspective putting it directly to the center. I also love, so to end, the use of light as to create a positive/negative space integration.

There are so many comments! So, this photo has incredible depth-perception-wise & for me the knowledge that often the ones who clean up after the party is over, the room vacant- they are most likely the real fairytales ♡♡♡
