Submission of Woman to the will of Man?


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

So many societies are so and the education of the women to their daughters continue it ! great portrait with
this symbol of the woman behind the man and the hard glance of the woman on the hardness of her life !

I love this composition where the wardrobe is so much more ornate on the woman in comparison to the simplicity of the man's. The reflections off the sequins adds a nice variation of colors.
