Today you will be writing about this photograph by artist Holly Andres. The image is from her body of work titled Stories From A Short Street. Here is the artist's project statement:
STORIES FROM A SHORT STREET is a collection of eight photographs inspired by my unique experience growing up in rural Montana as the youngest of ten children. By casting a fictitious group of siblings loosely based on archetypes of my own family, each image is constructed to enact a specific moment, communicate identity through space, and depict a psychological portrait.

Remember, in the statement it says the images are meant to depict a psychological portrait. How can the details of the photograph—the objects, lighting, background, color palette—help you make educated guesses about the identity of the subject and possible meaning of the image?
