Ralph Gibson - " From the Somnambulist (Mary Ellen Mark) ", 1967 - Gelatin silver print - x cm (*)

"I'm not what they think, I'm not what you say, I'm not who I'm expected to be, I'm not what you want me to be either. My whole life people have been trying to change me, everybody but you. That's why it's you, thats why it's always you".

The value in this photograph displays mostly a low-key category, mostly everything in this photograph is dark. But the value contrast is heavy, since out of all the dark shades, a slight light value of a hand is used to make this photograph pretty rad.
