Description
Exhibitions

Black-and-white image of a street scene, viewed from a high vantage point. There is a church front in the foreground that lines the street and takes up most of the left side of the image. There are figures walking in the street and there are three tall, dark poles in the right side of the composition, which are about the same height as the church. In the middle ground, behind the church, there is another building, or perhaps an extension of the church. A body of water is visible in the background, with another building further in the distance, on the other side of the water.
