Marc Sobel writes (sending link to New Yorker photo booth slide show): Don’t know what to make of this one.
The Bag answers: The “cellophane” one?  Does it feel sci-fi.  Maybe it has a mutated feeling.  Is it partly because it’s a woman, btw? Is part of the feeling of it that she’s a woman/solider?

Bag’s Take-Away:
