Description

One of ten photocollages printed in black and white on black stock.

Girl sitting at desk reading a book and inset at top right of two women performing sadomasochistic acts. Bottom inscription reads “This girl's back is bent until it is uncomfortable, her lungs are crowded so that she can’t breathe well. Her head is tilted so that blood does not flow easily to her brain and she can't think well.”
