The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 2, Chapter 22 Summary
- Tereza's camera serves as "both a mechanical eye through which to observe Tomas's mistress and a veil by which to conceal her face from her" (2.22.1).
- After Sabina has posed for nude photos, she takes the camera from Teresa and tells her that it's her turn to strip.
- Tereza notes that Sabina uses the same command ("Strip!") that Tomas uses on women.
- Tereza obeys, "intoxicated" by the "beauty" of submitting completely to another person's commands (2.22.4).
- After a few photos, Tereza bursts out laughing, and the two women get dressed.
