I had come across a couple of these images before, in the BJP, including The Models, but was entranced by the whole series.
I like the near complete absence of adults and the complete absence of boys. The colour palette is beautiful, somewhere between medieval illuminated manuscripts (especially the red top in The Necklace) and Evgenia Arbugaeva’s Tiksi (except slightly warmer). I find that the issue of whether the images are “true” or not largely slips my mind, they have their own story and for me that is enough. I don’t require my reading to be always “true”, nor do I require this in the photographs that I look at. It reminds me a bit of Alice, if Alice were cousins.
