This is a color archival pigment print from a digital file. The photograph depicts a full-length image of three women in carnival-like outfits posed with their arms around one another during the West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn, New York. From left to right, their outfits are a solid red, white, and blue color. Each woman is wearing a large, carnival crown with a matching bra top, belt, and black bottoms with large earrings. The top and bottoms have metal beads drooping across. The background is a metal background, presumably a roll-up store front door. There is a graffiti tag to the middle right in black sharpie [TAZ].
There are no inscriptions on the print, front or back.
