unknown expression?


I really like this image, because i think its quite ambivalent to what emotion is being depicted. its clear there is a strong emotion in this image, from body language and the little amount that you can see of the face – the eyes. the fact the body is moved in and hands covering the face. On this image i want to include the words De rire, De pleurer. which translates at to laugh, to cry. both opposites but both possibilities. You dont get a lot from the surroundings, but you can see a cigarette package, which is often associated with stress and also social conventions. so this enforces the ambiguity i think. This was not a staged photograph, it is a picture of intense laughter but I found a liking to the uncertainty to what emotion is being expressed.
