Photographer's Note

Talking faces… continuing…

Fascinating theme…
Many years ago, one of my photography mentors told me:
When you photographing people's faces make sure they (those faces) talk their names loud and clear…
The ones that don't talk their names are good enough only for passport or driver's license…

Dear Stan…
I remember your lesson well…

After murderous stage. Day after day…
Comes hail and high water...

He was one of the favorites. He didn't win.
He's fallen once or twice… He hit the curb, lost time waiting for his bike exchange…
His face talks… What are his thoughts ?
" I'm too old for this crap…
Why I'm doing this " ?

Some excerpts from the original critiques:

A talking face, an expression which would surely be rejected for Schengen Visa applications.

This one looks like a J.P. Sartre portrait Dear Gollum.

In grains you live peacefully

The hand also does some talking and that helps...

The grain has jumped from film to his face and clothes.

"Am I too old for this crap?" The kind of 'simple' questions that start of nagging oneself, once in a while... like bugs flying around and annoying us with their incessant buzz... :)

A philosophical entire life..the moment of truth or all at once ..

A typical Polonaise crap...

Gritty reportage as its best - timing is everything here - to catch the man at his most puzzled moment

And we thank for the lessons. You are our mentor, G.

Revisiting again your gallery - kick in the teeth
