Woman Himba tribu
:iconlematos:
Here's a very good example of a respectful portrait in a place where some people tend to use to much "clichés" that it should be.

The composition is very good as the two subjects occupy the right most part. The opening on the left coincides very well with her look while his' is uncertain. In my mind, I interpret it like we can see her blank past while his future is unknown.

The picture is not too much contrasted which gives the a very good mood, while the blacks are still deep enough to give some relief.

The picture captures a moment of the life of this woman in the village, carying her child from one place to the other, while he bites her breast. L'instant décisif.
