Two Waiting Women and B52 Nuclear Bomber- Colin Self- 1963

I chose this portrait because Colin Self is trying to show the anxiety about the threat of nuclear annihilation. He does this by using images signifying threat and aggression, and then tries to capture the tension between the two passive women in the photo. What I really liked about the picture was that the women are part-covert and part-fantasy portraits, combining images copied from a mass-produced fashion poster with imaginative invention.
