Nuru customer Mitchell Baker sent us the following note on why he bought Lana Slezic's print for his girlfriend as a gift for passing the bar exam:
JB - I liked what the photographer had to say about the history of the theater / school and the access to education for women. Having seen my girlfriend go through law school and foresee what most professional worlds offer in terms of a life for women, it seems no matter how high certain populations climb they don't seem to ever reach the top. Yet the girl doesn't seem deterred. The image freezes her scarf in a moment that should have been ephemeral and would have been unnoticed if not for the camera capturing it. Two-dimensional images don't represent reality, they just can't capture the sounds, or the space in the way that 'being there' really does. But because of the ability to see so many things in a photograph, to study it like a book, we can see so much in the split second that should have vanished, and that is remembered and more powerful than most in-the-flesh experiences.
