It becomes evident that these straightforward images are, in fact, loaded. The current polemic of veiling, the incongruity between the clothing and the time period, and the inward gaze of the sitter invite the viewer to pause, and contemplate these photographs and their meaning. Søndergaard’s approach to this series is not as an ethnographic or typographical study, but rather a focus on almost imperceptible moods and elements— how much is visible, what is said and what is unsaid, what is exposed and what is unexposed.
