I like this series quite a lot because of the diverse reactions from different people, through their movements and different gazes that reflect different focus between male and female. This is especially obvious in the photo of the couple, the man looks at the naked woman in the painting while the woman just looks at the  painting in the center. I love to capture the true reactions and emotions of people by doing some experiments or creating a situation to let people deal with. Also, looking at these images somehow makes me think of the ways of seeing, the viewers like me look at the photo where the photographer looked at the strangers in front of the shop, and the strangers looked at the painting in front of them. These connections are really interesting to think about.
