“The sun, which was already a little low created sharp silhouettes against the back light. I switched out the 28mm for the exact opposite, the 135 mm which would best form the image that I was hoping for and which I could already see in my head. Just as I hoped a little girl stepped on to the bridge. A single click”
~ Willy Ronis(1910-2009)
This image is unique in Willy’s wonderful body of work. Deliberately over exposed and using wizardry in the dark room it is an image full of life and movement and the little girl crossing the bridge has many layers of metaphorical meaning. A hypnotic image of childhood.
