With her back turned, this young woman prepares to disrobe amid shards of broken glass. Althoug the model remains fully clothed, Manuel Alvarez Bravo's staging invites the viewer to contemplate the form beneath the dress. Raising her arms to unclip her hair, she appears to be making a sexual overture. The proximity of her bare feet to the glass fragments suggests a potential threat. This photograph attests to Alvarez Bravo's ties to the Surrealists, for whom eroticism was always tinged with danger.
