Bathtub-Womenweb

The “Bathtub Women” is a simple image that isn’t hard to “read.” The absurdity of the two women, clothed and in a tub together, is formalized by the relationship between the dark oval-shaped mirror on the wall and the oval-shaped white ceramic tub and further enhanced by the wonderful shadows. That the two women are not posed for the camera together, but that one is focused on the other, while that other is focused on the photographer creates a much more interesting dynamic. And, of course, there is the question that will never be answered: “Why are they in the robed women in the tub together?” Courtesy Mark Glovsky Collection.
