It’s not a long list, and the photographer I am referring to in this post stages or sets up her shots. She went overboard in her later years (that makes it sound like she is dead, but she is not – she is 68) but in this photo I think she spoke volumes. The young hopeful is waiting, for what, with what hope and what expectation?
I’ve written about this photo before, in this post about the 2019 exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. This time I am going all out and posting it bigger.
