Style No. 60: In Front In Back


In front of a great crowd a young boy whistles while in the back of his mind dark thoughts consume his imagination. He wears a t-shirt that is orange in the front and orange in the back. His best friend — whose eyes face the front and evaluate the crowd, and whose arm wraps around the whistler’s back — notices an old woman passing nervously from the back toward the front. She has a hidden object on the front of her head concealed by a shawl draped over her back. Meanwhile, in the back an odd man looks knowingly toward the front.

A goat approaches from the back and heads toward the front. Bamako, Mali, 2012.
