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.
What do you think?

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 ♡♡♡

Bon, je vais l'écrire en français, parce que je ne sais pas trouver mes mots quand l'émotion est forte !

Cette photo est tout simplement magique : cette lumière qui vient du fond et qui crée un contrejour marqué mais doux avec cette personne recourbée sur son travail, la passante qui rend la prise de vue intemporelle, le vide de la pièce qui impose son caractère angoissant, les quelques objets qui renforcent les dimensions du magasin et qui rendent le travail de nettoyage si harassant, les reflets du sol mouillé qui accentuent la salissure des lieux conséquence de la fréquentation antérieure qui n'est plus, les lignes verticales et surannées du mur de droite, le cadre désuet de la vitrine, la lumière blafarde qui baigne l'ensemble qui justifie le chois du noir et blanc, la mise au point parfaite : tout ça en un instantané !!

Bravo, Batsceba :)

Fave...

 

Great Strong Picture...!

 

The empty room...

forces me to look...

at the woman...

To become her witness...

 

The silhouette...

does not give away...

anything about her...yet...

 

Looks like...

the opening scene...of "Cinderella"...

in a Bertold Brecht version...

 

I am waiting...

for the sound...

of a false piano...

 

Greetings Batsceba...Jakob.
