Scenes et Types

Isn't is always amazing how art or photography can often express things that, at times, words cannot? Photographer Triana Markova-Gold has made a series of collages called Scenes et Types from photographs she took of marginalized women in Morocco. I love the way that collages, at times, clearly protect the identity of the woman, while allowing her body language alone to express her story. In other cases, such as in the first image, the full view of the woman is equally powerful. I particularly love the juxtaposition of the monochromatic image against the intense burst of color and pattern. What do you think?
