A photograph, a document, a moment, simple, straight on. A woman with worried eyebrows rearing a crying baby; a shelf with a bottle of aspirin; a hanging chain of safety pins in the pre-Pampers days; clothespins for hanging the washing before the age of dryers; a broom of bristly hair for the house chores that await; a dress to filter it all. A moment. A photograph.
