Looking through images to choose for this assignment on MoMA was an assignment itself, so much great material to choose from it was hard to make a decision. After looking through countless amounts of images, I found this one. My initial reaction when I saw this image was I liked how it told a story. The story I see when I look at this image is of a woman partaking in sexual activity with many men to get by and make a living. Judging by her facial expressions, she knows what she is doing is wrong, but she knows she has to do it to make a living. I also like how most of the images on MoMA I wouldn't be able to use because they need to be censored, but this one was surprisingly appropriate. Also, in photos I like seeing people smoking, for some reason I think that it makes the photograph better. This is the image I chose from MoMA, and why I like it.
