Object:Young girls posing in front of a staircase
Description:Outdoor group portrait of fifteen young girls posing in front of a staircase leading from a courtyard to a house entrance. The girls are dressed for a festive occasion, wearing predominantly dark dresses and carefully done Bubikopf hairstyles. They are standing in two rows: the girls in the front are more concentrated on posing than those in the back, who are either hidden by their colleagues or chatting. A girl on the staircase is watching the scene, her cardigan and less neatly dressed hair indicate that she does not belong to the group.
Comment:The girls are probably secondary school pupils on the occasion of their graduation.
