My god! Or that was my initial reaction... would love to know more about the context of this shot.

Is this comment helpful?

Hello Tim,
in fact this is a real-life shot, I took in one on Mursi tribe village in 2011 in Mago NP, Omo Valley, Ethiopia. The lady was sitting in shadow under a tree, with her child. I realized that the lighting and pose is somehow resembling those of passport photos...I removed rests of the background and converted to B/W. I am happy that the photo interested you,
Regards :)
