Souvenir photo, black frame and black passe partout 36 x 35 cm, 1/3+1AP
Ex Ghiacciaia, Milan

As a found-object, in the photograph four Arab women are posing “V” for victory and their eys are red by the flash light that is likely the counterpoint to a claustrophobic sense caused by the Burqa. A bank part above their heads surrounded by the black mounted frame appears to be the same slit in the Burqa they are wearing.
