an image, a thought

I’m just adding text to my photography (an experiment).

I took this photo November 3, 2007 at the Opening of the “ayer, hoy, mañana”. The exhibit was held at Acme Art Works. This was the third showing of our collaborative project that included nine photographers, all showcasing photographs from the 2006 and 2007 immigration mega marches. We worked hard on this event which not only included photography but a panel of speakers and a forum for dialogue.

I know this photo is not a great one but I like it and yes, perhaps it’s my own bias. My brother and I had a good discussion about it. We spoke on aesthetics, form and the message it conveys, both the intended and the recieved. Now my main argument was that because this was not a staged photograph I couldn’t have as much control of what was in the frame. Of course without context, this photo may not say much but it is still illustrating a man that is paying attention to something. I don’t know, to me he seems captivated by what he’s looking at. Maybe I’ll write some more later…
