Photographer's Note

I was sorting through some old slides when I came across this. It was taken nearly 20 years ago, but still seems to be relevant. To me it symbolises the conflict between the old and the new; tradition and modernity.
It's a family group with one woman and the (almost hidden) child in modern Western clothes, whilst the two older? ladies are in traditional Muslim dress. Even then there seems to be contrast with the lady on the left in traditional dress, but with a brightly coloured dress beneath.
It was very much a snatched shot as we were sat in a cafe by the harbour in Paphos when I saw the possibilities. That's my excuse for it not being absolutely sharp.
