A fabulous evocative encounter of two young women and an older woman. The encounter couldn't be starker. Two young women show their supple youth in light form-revealing dresses, standing in contrapposto, while the older woman stands pillar-like in an outfit that covers her head to ankle. The possible interpretations of the narrative depicted in this nighttime meeting are endless.
