It’s all in the hands and eyes.
It’s very hot today. The brutal temperature probably influenced the way she looks.
This photograph was made outside the Whole Foods Market on Cambridge Street in Boston. As I went in, this gentleman was finishing up a coffee and pastry. As I came out it would seem he needed a little shut eye before continuing on.
To my mind this image is a lucky joining of personal emotion with an interesting background. This young man was sitting quietly on a bench outside of a local real estate agent. His downtrodden face seemed jarringly at odds with the pictures inside. I liked that dissonance.
A cute kid is impossible to ignore!
This one was made at the Kendall Square theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I’m on the mezzanine level looking down towards the main lobby. I liked the way the grid of the building’s facade and the angles of the staircase encompass the figures.
The simple act of looking at something can be amazingly complex. As photographers we look all the time but often we see something entirely different from those who view are work. This photograph started out in color. The column was red and the boys shirts were different colors. I felt that version took away from the fixed gazes of the two subjects, but the juxtaposition of the tones and hues were interesting. Though I chose to eliminate the color, I’m sure that others would have preferred it.
