May / June 2019.
A series of recollections about the Why behind the photo. The fragments and questions that come with it. All at once or one after the other. The story seeds that follow before and after the photograph is made.
I see many of them in the nearabouts of where I live. Most wear black and white or just black, like this one. She’s always there, on the shortcut, observing the world from the windowsill in some sort of contemplative meditation.
When I pass her by I wave or smile and by the way she looks at me, I know she says hi back.
This portrait is a gift to her, something to remember me by.
I hope she likes it.
Did I tell you how much I love this camera? Which camera you say? Why, this little baby of course:
I must admit, I find it hard to use the big, heavy Nikon when photographing on the street after this little fella. Here are some selections from the last two films I shot.
I know it doesn't look like it, but this is a real camera. I began using the Chupa to reduce my anxiety of going out by myself on the street to photograph and it's absolutely fantastic. As you can see, it's cute, small and non intrusive at all. More so, it pops free lollies.
I've already finished a couple of films with it and the results are wonderful.
