Joy by Ewa Cwikla

Joy, 2017

Ewa Cwikla

A blue-eyed woman draped in white silk cradling a bundle of roses gazes dreamily off into the distance. Her milky skin is as luminous as a marble statue, a quality emphasized by her still pose. Her left index finger delicately points toward her chin, furthering the pensive mood. The artist wrote that for her, the secret of photography is in a photograph’s emotional content. With this image, she creates an open-ended story, full of longing and perhaps an unanswered question.
