The light and shadows in this self-portrait by Noe Todorovich are what make the image. Yes, it’s a nice portrait, but placing herself in such a graphic scene and using the natural geometry the window blinds create from the light shows great creativity and photographic foresight.
There is something very satisfying about a photograph that leaves you with more questions than answers. When there is just enough information for the viewer to create their own narrative, the photograph takes on new meaning with each person who sees it. This self portrait from Noe Todorovich, called Sliver of Light, does leave many questions. Surely Todorovich had her own intentions when creating this photo, but it is up to us to fill in the blanks with the information provided, and draw our own conclusions.
