In the photographer's words: "The old lady in the photo is my mother's aunt (around 85 years old), and she is preparing for the morning ritual: reading the newspaper. In order words, yesterday's news. An antique cabinet in the back and her dress from the 1980s also reflect her dedication to old times.
This photo is important because it is one of my first photographs that I've taken with an analog SLR, processed the B&W film and enlarged it to the photo paper. Dodging is applied to the face in order to reveal more detail."
