    Would have preferred this anywhere around the frame, centre not working for me, but to catch beautiful girl in hijab without intruding into her physical space is a job well done..you have managed to remain invisible in this one too..

    its all about arranging the elements in the rectangle - sergio larrain.

    i thought this was the cliched concept of partial desat, and i am so so happy it is not. a similar mood, i love the presence of the man with the his shirt open, probably to beat the heat. this could very well be the scene of an old chinese movie. love the red in there, the communist red, is it ? ;)

    nice to see you bro...

    A visit to northern iraq in 2014, there has to be purpose and strong faith, an open-mindedness, values and respect, qualities that i see you possess, and i don't know you enough. if you travelled for work or as a personal journey to understand the plight of a nation which has lost so much. to see, believe, connect and photograph, i think the series is a gem. the boys represent the two sides of a country still struggling from the after effects of a "war", decades of persecution. while one is still cynical, skeptical about your presence, chooses to hide his identity, chooses not to open up, i think it speaks more about his mind than his body language. The other is the optimistic one, with a faint smile, unsure but still holding onto faith. is that a rosary between his palms ? he wants to be the child who grows up normally, to ride, to swim and play, have a future, a life worth living.

    this is such an important photo given the context and condition of a country ravaged by decades of war. your gallery chooses to show smiling faces of families and people and landscape. a breath of fresh air. The only time i get to see photos from iraq is through the work of photojournalists and freelance workers. They are addicted to showing hopelessness, loss, despair, the dark side with no future.

    Respect, admiration Kasia.

    it is simplistic, minimal, beautiful poise of the woman, though i would prefer her to be a part of the bigger scene, maybe a wider shot, place her elsewhere in the frame, maybe entering the frame ? its all about arranging the rectangle, woos..i remember quotes from sergio larrain....

    good week kasia

    Hello Globe trotter, well first of all how come you have not visited india by now ? :)

    you should have a fantastic time here and since photography is your forte i would suggest you travel asap. you will embark on a journey like no other.

    well about these gimmicks that the locals are unto is just to make some extra pocket money, they don't usually expect but the sight to a western tourist could mean some handy cash, i was on one the basket boats in the coconut farms in Hoi An, central vietnam and the fisherman spun the basket around with quite incredible speed, like a top, like one of those theme park rides when you small, right? but it was all cool, he enjoyed it as much as i did. there was no signal, or suggestion that he wanted to be tipped at the end of it. but honestly, some damage is done, and i speak for myself and from what i have observed india. some foreign tourist who aspire to make photos end up paying the locals only for photographs ! to me, its not good taste, if you have to, you could just buy something on their behalf etc. what happens eventually, they expect it from every tourist who would want to make some candid photos too. They get aggressive, see it as a breach of private space or a dent in their business. Photography is not about that really. I think if you could smile and have a small conversation and exchange ideas, money is the last thing on their minds.

    but these little gimmicks make your trip, tips aside. i like the photo and fact that you opted for a fast shutter to make the silhouettes stand out.

    cheers
