This photo appeals to me because of its complex geometry of divisions in which there is a montage of pictures within pictures. Also I like the layering of the spaces which are produced by the varying tonal densities ……. and finally I like the progression of figures that lead the eye into the picture space, and how this is checked by the many verticals in the composition. There are many relationships and juxtapositions which animate this scene and some of them are things of the real world, and some are the elements of line, mass, tone, density, division and scale.
This is how I read images………….. and I’m still taking the tablets……..
