    1. Long A middle-aged African American woman pivots on her left leg, raising her right knee and ducking her head. She extends her arms slightly to her sides as long brown dreadlocks swing forward as she turns. She wears a black sleeveless shirt and dark-gray trousers.

    1. Long A person poses dramatically balanced on one arm, limbs spread in various directions–each adorned with a cowboy boot. One booted arm points towards us and both legs splay out to touch the walls of the nearby corner. The person faces away from you, back flexing from the contortion of their pose. The lighting of the photograph is dramatic and dream-like, with one light source casting red shadows and an orange glow, while another light casts green shadows. The figure's shadow spreads across the wall revealing the outline of male genitals.
