Photographer's Note

WEDDING COSTUME OF THE 1940's-50's. I had already posted this photo, and have decided to repost it, in order to add it to my theme group: "Breton traditional costumes". Most celtic groups have gone into depths to recreate the local costumes of different epochs, and they wear all of them at festivals.
The one shown on this photo, is actually an original one worn in PLOUGASTEL in the 1940's and 1950's. I thought that showing the back of the skirt and head dress was interesting, because a lot of skills goes into embroidering the pearls, and in setting the head dress.
On Valeria's advice, I did a tighter crop especially of the lady's legs, in order to enhance the costume itself, which is the main subject of the photo.
