I'm a frequent visitor to the cinematheque, and every time I come by for a movie I stop and look at your pictures. They are so expressive and alive, and it's amazing how you capture these moments and create this glimpse into the humanity of absolute strangers. I'll keep this short, but I really identified with what you wrote for the exhition, as well.
I'm in love with the camera too and in the past year and a half have discovered many new worlds through it. I also find people endlessly fascinating and beautiful in many ways (though I often feel a barrier). I find the process of taking pictures of absolute strangers in the street difficult, though I often see a human scene that captures my eye and heart. Often I don't do anything about it though the camera is almost always with me, and feel a small pinch for what I missed, what I don't create. I'm trying to break through to making that comfortable, because I don't like "stealing" pictures and appreciate the interpersonal aspect of photography, and know it can createa real connection beteen the person photographed and the viewer as well as the person photographed (I don't like "subject") and the photographer. It's a great way to meet people.
I've taken pictures of people before, many times, and often found people very welcoming. But I still find it hard when people treat you with suspicion or misunderstanding (often they are welcoming, complemented, glad, even if they don't understand). I wanted to ask you how you do it, how you break these barriers and come to a situation where people allow you to capture them naturally (not posing, though they do look at you in some pics it's in a way that's more of a natural connection, not posing), fully knowing you're there. I'd be glad for anything you could say about it, and would be glad to talk over it too.
Thank you for these great picures and the spirit coming from them and from your words
