Cortona was rich pickings…
Well, I thought so.
Cortona antique shop. July 2018.
The composition. The religious statement. The sense of history. The poverty. The setting.
Everything about this picture is remarkable in my opinion.
I was struck by the image of this peasant girl in the aforementioned exhibition in Tuscany (Cortona to be precise). She’s a peasant girl and the flowers are crap. But her freckles make her stand out. just one of many great photographs in an exhibition you’d have paid good money to see and be thankful.
It was free.
