Not quite Bathers by the Seine
Iranian Pilgrims in Sanliurfa Turkey, by the sacred pool of the prophet Abraham. All covered up even on vacation. The only feature that separate them from mere shadows in this photo are the hands. Even the only face is partially obscured. Hands outstretched, palms up, in submission. This vaguely reminds me of one of Cartier-Bresson's India photos albeit in a less powerful form. The hands are not covered because they need to be exploited; taken for granted.
"People reside inside their bodies for decades, but they rarely examine these vessels and all their intricate, dutiful parts. A house is more easily remembered than a body. One can describe the number of rooms, the glass in the windows, the colour of the walls, the tiles in the bathroom."
~ Dalia Sofer, The Septembers of Shiraz
