At rest, Cuenca, Ecuador, 2011

This woman was sweeping the entrance to the shop in which she works. She stopped for a moment to lean on her broom and reflect on some aspect of her life. In looking at her expression, I think she is about as far away as she can get from her broom without putting it down. It is a portrait that does what an expressive portrait should do not just show what a person looks like, but also rather define something about whom they are.
