I like this batch - they are in motion and somehow via luck elegantly - lately I strive for an "abstract realism" - see the last picture in post. This points to what I am aiming for - as an interest, a map for exploration.
My words here are sparse, no? Like poor man's ad copy. I admire my blogger friends who can write eloquently more and thread conceptual needles. Your words and quotes do inspire me.
Lately I have been photographing white when I see it - so much black in the NY winter.
I feel most at home photographing in Penn Station. There is open space and there are enough people and bustle that my image making is less obvious. There is also also the greatest amount of diversity of subjects.
I continue to photograph more women subjects than men - part is subject matter preference and the other part is the confrontational aspect of taking candids. I do seem able to take photos on subway cars in close proximity and not be caught.
I heart Frdays.
