Somewhat Gay and Graceful (Getty Museum)

http://www.getty.edu/art/gettyguide/artObjectDetails?artobj=105203&handle=li

Manuel Alvarez Bravo (Mexico 1902-2002), ‘Somewhat gay and graceful’ 1942.
From the pages: the author ” achieved this jarring, flattened perspective by photographing from an oblique angle. Despite the title’s reference to poise, everything in the image… appears transitory and unstable”.

A perfect adequation between the subject (an ephemeral situation) and its treatment.
