Woman and Barber Pole

Woman and Barber Pole

photograph print

large view

The eye is first drawn to the large barber pole, then down to the face of a woman reading inside a dark, decrepit building. The reflections in the window panes show us that the building is in a run down area. This photograph has a particularly interesting composition made up of strong vertical and horizontal elements, with the woman's head underscored by the bright line running across the window.
