A great photograph adapts its meaning.
In this image, it's up to you to see Bresson's Sifnos girl, or just a jump to freedom, an escape, or effectively a trap.
On the other hand we know that such projections are as frivolous as a morning eagerness …
The only certainty is that as long as a photograph pins you down for a few seconds, it is a meaningful picture.
In a masterful exercise of subtraction, Florina's instant drawing contains very few shapes. Gracefully outlined already, they are then colorised with residues of oil pastel crayons. Sky blue, lava red and smoked white, on rugged black paper.
Pure luck, some would say. Visual anticipative intelligence I would argue. The attentive photographer uses previous trials and errors to construct an educated intuition and thus apprehend the brief blessed moments of an ephemeral flow.
