Mother with stroll in front of the Brooklyn Library in Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn, New York
Woman with a stroller in front of the Brooklyn Library in a street photograph from the Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn. Late afternoon light suffuses the scene with warm and gentle hues. A mother, dressed in striking greens and blue, pushes her baby stroller on the plaza. She is at a nexus of harmonizing blues and compositionally converging lines which points to and resolves in the entrance to the library. On the columns surrounding the doorway are literary and mythological figures. By association, the mother becomes like a 21st century version of a fertility goddess. The other people in the background find similarity with the figures on the doorway extending the correspondence between myth and reality.
