    Perfection! Marriage of colours from her dress against the wall is uncanny.

    I enjoy the contrast between the subcultures of street art and individual style on this photograph.

    Perfection! I love her outfit, her stance (minus the cigarette), the background…! Great picture.

    I love how this shot could have been taken in the 70s, it is like a time travel. And of course she looks just fabulous!

    I’m SPEECHLESS!!! Definitely one of my favourites of your work, & can envision it as the cover image for your next book or a retrospect of your work.

    You have such a fabulous eye for the interplay of colors, patterns, light, and shadow!

      I couldn’t agree more, it’s as if the sixth sense takes over to capture the interplay of all these elements effortlessly.

    Love how her outfit complements the graffiti so nicely (or vice versa?). Great shot!

    Haha… the photo takes on a Banksy-like commentary.

    What a vibrant photo – love the lighting especially.

    This person looks like she just walked out of the wall ! I would love a poster of this photo so colorful and bright. In the meantime, I’ll have it as a screen saver.

    This is a great shot! Colorful. A closer shot, shadow following, busting bokeh would have been explosive. Good work.

    This picture is probably in my top favorites from this site (and I’ve been following for several years!). As other commenters have pointed out, I love how the colors between her outfit (which is amazing on its own!) and the graffiti harmonize, while simultaneously bringing in references to such different worlds! Very subtle, clever, and beautiful. And very New York (at least, my west coast idea of it).

    If both of her feet were firmly on the ground, this image wouldn’t be as glorious as it is.

    Feeling all set to celebrate spring. The floral patterns and the bright color of spring décor and fashion certainly lifts up the mood. Love them.

    Wowsa! Nice. It’s a wonderful world.

    Do you know that in Toronto, the city counsellors passed a bill to make us get rid of the graffiti in our alleyways? We were instructed to paint over garage doors, &c., or be heavily fined. Of course, none of us residents minded the graffiti. There was nothing pornographic or offensive. It was just colorful.

    And could they not see that we were just providing a blank canvas for more grafitti which we should again have to cover?

    And by the way, the city has appointed gov’t approved grafitti artists, which to me is a contradiction in terms. Gov’t approved graffiti is surely propaganda.

    My husband and I are fighting it but seem to be the only ones so far. Fight the state in our lives, we say. Whereas people now seem always to want the state in their lives.

    This reminds me of that classic b&w photo American Girl in Italy, only much grittier and with NYC written all over it! Love it!

    I love that the colours of her outfit and the graffiti speak to one another, the reds especially

    That dress is simply delicious! It has all the right elements and reminds me of fashion patterns of the past.

    I like everything she wears, expecially the dress and the turban: she element that more catches the eye is a colour, that bright red. The urban background is a perfect completion. The entire shoot represents what really mean the American concept “melting pot” about different cultures.

    Just pay attention to the legs down to those shoes, it’s just downright sexy.
