These works underscore the dichotomy between being able to see the emotions a stranger is experiencing, while being unable to know the story behind their emotions. The absence of color and the stark lighting draw attention to this dichotomy in a way that cannot be ignored. The women are photographed in an intimate way that reveals their inner selves without an attempt to hide from the viewer. At the end of the day, however, although the viewer is allowed to view an intimate moment, the viewer will never know the true nature of the captured moments.
