  1. The photograph of individual or individuals engaging a work of art in a museum or art gallery when done well is one of my favorite subject matters. And yours is done quite well, highlighting splendidly what makes such a subject matter pop: the capture in some manner of the invisible dynamics going on between the work of art and the viewer(s). A fascination I suppose with the mystery of what it is about an a particular art pieces that moves not only ourselves, but also other people. The two people are reduced to mere silhouettes , yet their stances speak of a deep engagement with the work. No small feat accomplished in that respect. Although the art piece itself is illuminated, your photo makes the silhouettes the intriguing subjects that the eyes gravitate toward.
