This is complicated photograph. There are multiple lines–most of them diagonal. In addition, there is a sense of motion and a reflection in the mirror that doubles everything. On top of that, the whole thing is framed tighter than one might expect, given the complexity. However, it is the sense of motion within a tight frame that makes this one successful. Also adding interest is the sheen of the pink skirt that reflects light in differing hues. Better yet, I think the photograph captures a sense that dress-up is fun, giving the image a storytelling quality.
This is part of a series of pink skirt images I’ve done, including a book that ends with the line: “Who needs a pink skirt? . . . You do.” The book will be available on-line shortly.
A little history, the skirt belonged to my mother and was part of her prom dress. It’s taffeta and full enough to make a complete circle.
The photo prints large or small. The colors are vivid. I think it would be fun in a dressing room.
