    Oh. Erm...

    "Incognito".

    I don't think the idea to photograph a person in this manner would ever occur to me.
    I think for me it would have been either a composition of purely the lines and shapes and areas of different textures and brightness, or one with the person visible to all ... but actually your approach is quite intriguing!

    Talk about leaving a little something for the viewers' imagination.
    Wonderful.

    I love the photo and the format, my second camera was a 126 Instamatic with lovely square photos, when I took up medium format a few years ago I choose 6x6 simply for the format. The challenge of composition in a square image is always fun.

    The bag sitting to the right of the person (or our left) is a bit distracting because it disrupts the symmetry. But aside from that it's a great shot, with a nice approach.

    I like it, but as mentioned above, the bag does detract some from the photo.

    I actually think the bag ADDS to the photo by disrupting the symmetry. Maybe a different prop would have done the job better, but I suspect that Tuna is all about unstaged captures.
