Dancing the Sardana

This photograph by Chany Crystal, entitled, “Dancing the Sardana” is probably my favorite kind of photograph, because it illustrates an implied story if not outright telling one itself. It has a great contrast of old and new; it is a beautiful faceless portrait. This photograph was taken in Barcelona, Spain, but judging just from the elements in the photo, this story could be taking place anywhere. It’s specific to a narrative, but open-ended enough that that narrative could be a great many things in a great many places. It makes me, as a viewer, want to know more about what is going on. That is great photography.
