Who is that girl? Why is she dressed like that? Why is she standing on a stage in front of an empty theatre? Where are the people? Is she an actor? Why does this image ask so many questions of the viewer? What era is this? I love an image that seems to beg for a story or invites questions and pondering. She seems so elegant, her touch is light, her frame slight, fragile almost but also standing tall and proud. You sense that she is beautiful too.
It’s an image that asks a lot of questions. It has beautiful light, an elegant subject who is not aware of the photographer, and is in an unusual setting that doesn’t quite make sense. For all those reasons, I love it.
