The ray of light peeking through the crack creates a blinding effect on the subject. The light is so bright that it blinds her vision, covering her eyes in the photo. The black and white filter makes the ray of light even more bright.
I like the mixed media feel of this one and the fact that it's black and white. And also that it features a human form, which goes along with our theme of Identity. (textiles- instead of white paper use muslin and hand stitch)
