Study of black by Maria Baranova

I adore this photograph, plain and simple.  Adore.  I can’t understand that it isn’t paint, from a long time ago, when women sat by  smokey candles, throwing bobbins around making lace.  And the composition just holds me, the entire image is really about the roundness of black clothe and a small defiant look.

Moscow-based Maria Baranova has much more to share on her website.  Finding her work is just one of the reasons I swim through flickr everyday, and I look forward to keeping up with her work.

Here’s another favorite if mine…
