This is a photo I took in Amsterdam in 2000 of a shop window of “live” mannequins modelling lingerie. A beautiful crisp winter day reflected the mood of people in and out of the window. The live models attracted the attention of the passing public and I enjoyed the interaction between the models & the couples outside.
You can feel the expressions of the males staring at the girls inside & the moment was made more intense by the silence of the street . A voyeuristic moment caught on camera …
