The Daydream (1935)
Fantasy is a characteristic from his work of this period. In this photograph a young girl stands on a balcony caught in a wistful moment. Despite its simplicity, the picture has an ambiguous quality. Does it reflect longing, lament, or reverie? We are free to choose. In its quietude and sense of the solitary, it conveys a message across time and space.
The photography of Manual Alvarez Bravo (1902 - 2002)
