The spiky shadows of palm fronds clothe most of the figure of a woman in shade. The high contrast pattern draws the eye before the subtler shades, giving simultaneous feelings of a body both revealed and concealed. An exposed arm and thigh lead the eye into the camouflaged figure. The striped pattern wrapping torso are reminiscent of animal markings such as a zebra or tiger. The center of the body bears a shadow pattern that echoes the vertebrae of a spine, approximately bisecting the figure. Square stone tiles form grid lines, framed by diagonal patches of darkness in the corners. The shapes, lines and textures tell a story of contrast. Photographed on Harbour Island, The Bahamas.
