“Interior of migratory fruit worker’s tent. Yakima, Washington.” (1936)
Talk about making the most of the light that’s available.
If he’d taken this photo outside the light would have been far too bright for a good image; you can see it how it burns through the fabric of the tent. Instead he got her at the table, half in and half out of shadow, with just enough gauze between the light and the subject to give her a heavenly glow. He must have been in love with her, and so am I.
