Well, at least Bruce Gilden calls interestingly photogenic people characters. I took this with an iPhone, with the stress of a low battery looming over me coupled with the possibility of not having a firm tether to the grid so that my family would not loose me.
This is all Henri Cartier Bresson had. Well, minus the meter. And actually, he had three less rolls of film in 1948 when he photographed Mahatma Gandhi’s funeral.
It makes me wonder why todays “photographers” feel a need to carry SO much crap with them. I know, I know, we live in 2013, and we NEED to stay connected with EVERYBODY especially when we take pictures. I say no need to re-invent the wheel. HCB had it right.
Ok, I’m no master printer, but I love the process and I am deeply humbled by those like Gene Nocon and Voja Mitrovic who can interpret what photographers see with an artisan touch.
This is going to be great. I paid the awesome low low price of FREE!
