The photograph exists within this seemingly honest moment that has the potential to, all at once occur before, during, and after some experience or enlightenment that leaves one’s perception stripped away from any illusions and left only with the truth. The look on the young woman’s face is one of absolutely no pretense or deflection and has a directness which alludes to the present tense. The used flower stems might be suggestive of the past, while the red fork suggests that something has been, or is about to be eaten, literally or metaphorically.
