Red-haired by Ale Di Gangi

Currently unavailable for purchase

Now, I have a story to tell behind this shot:
according to the people @ Melboosktore (where this shot was taken as I was there last Saturday for the opening of my exhibition – <a href="http:/*/" rel="nofollow">read about it on my website</a>), this woman seats at the bar of the bookstore – every single day. For hours.
Completeley absorbed on her makup, she seats in this very same chair, occupying another chair in front of her for her bag and makeup set.
If anyone tries and asks her for the seat where she has her things, a drama can occur.

I took the photo of this woman and thought “well, I’ve had my photo for today”, but I still did not know the story I was about to hear.

Guess what: now I want to go to the bookstore everyday to steal candid shots f this woman.
