On a quantum level the laws of physics overflow our cartesian existence. If we imagine the subjects as quantum particles, the photographer would attend an experiment in the Nature’s laboratory.
Sometimes the protagonists are distributed with mastery in the framework of photography. Random, luck and opportunity make their appearance.
With the heat people slow down. Everything flows in slow motion. And summer days lengthen to the incredible. My advise: cold water, sunglasses, and walk in the shade. It is not convenient to look at the clock because then the rush comes. Enjoy your time.
We have everything on the beach: horizon, sea, sky, and sand. In between, like ants out of the nest, human figures play, enjoy water, sunbathe, heat up, enjoy leisure time to be happy, and most importantly, are in a great scenario to be photographed.
Seeing a photograph is a visual and intellectual pleasure. Just like reading a good book, just like listening carefully to an immortal concert or opera. Sometimes relationships are established between the elements of the image, certain contrasts, a kind of dialogue between the subjects. I do not mean the composition or the usual rules of the four thirds, I speak about the subtle situations. In this series I especially like the photograph of the woman who crosses La Rambla. The female protagonist establishes a formal relationship with the three-arm lamppost. Why? The woman also has three arms and a point of distant light at the tip of the nose!
We agree that black and white photography does not represent reality. It is a vision of the world that has annulled the color to recreate itself in the gray scale, the monochrome or the monotone. Whatever option the photographer has chosen, there is also the eye, what he chooses and captures. Within this series you can see a bearded bride, a Levitating Menina, a cyclist dog, and other photographs that would enter into a photographed reality canon due to its likelihood.
The street photographer can be seen as an extension of the flâneur, an observer of the streets (who was often a writer or artist).
