Time just seems too slow for someboday...it is painful, but you did it, and you did it well!~
Ilove how he is stationary while everything around him is moving. It's sad, cos this is his life. Great shot.
thanks for the feedback. You have perceived exactly what I was trying to comunicate, which makes this image even more meaningful to me. It is indeed an hard image, which was also not easy to shoot emotionally. I pre-visualized this type of image and prepared all the technicalities to get it right (ND filters etc.) but when I was downtown and actually had to take it, it hit me how sad it was. It's not by chance that this and the other images of the series have all the subjects not facing the camera: I could not really face them straight on, just like the other persons zooming by on the sidewalk.
Hi,Claudio -- your images continue to move -- and to move me. I am struck by your use of time here. You contrast the fast pace of the workaday world against the much slower movement of the homeless person on the street. It reveals a poignant truth. Most of us do not wish to acknowledge the plight of such people as this on the street, so we will walk on by as fast as we can. It is an image that is hard to look at, and even harder to think about.
