Hand made gold frame
A moment in time is captured here by Bridgman of a mother and her children waiting for the husband to return home. The main focus is on the mother, who returns our gaze and the young boy peeps around the corner to see who has entered their street. While the younger one is happy looking down at his toy.
With pictures like this we can get an understanding of the people who lived in Biskra at this time. A shaft of light glides across the picture and lands on the boys clothing, enhancing the rich reds and yellows that he wears, while the mother’s clothing is enhanced by her jewellery.
