Jesse and Robert, Mystic Lake, Medford, MA, 2003
I chose this picture to write about because I found it very interesting. My opinion of this picture is that the two boys are brothers who are playing in the water and seem very calm and relaxed. What I noticed was that Grannan didn't use a lot of color in her picture, which seems odd because when I picture kids in the water I picture a bright, sunny day. Instead, the picture is very dark and cloudy. Katy Grannan photographs unknown Americans, whose portraits "are often raw and unsettling, made with a leap of faith, a combination of trust, intimacy, and role-playing."
