Tangentially related: I’m struck by the development of both Safar and Naz and how they seem parallel to each other. The first picture on this page captures this for me. Both beginning in relative obscurity and evincing an air of innocence, they are brought to this point by systems and outside forces that require them to alter their affect. They are hardened in preparation for life changing events, while Stone looks like a spectator.
