Of freedom and slavery

Helmut Newton

“You are free now, O, said Anne-Marie. We can remove your rings, the collar, the cuffs, erase your mark. You have diamonds, you can go back home.” O did not cry, did not complain. She did not reply to Anne-Marie. “But if you want, Anne-Marie added, you can stay.”
