Photographer's Note

I met these street musicians in an alley near the large central square, the Rynek, in the old part of Wrocław, southwestern Poland. They were walking fast, clearly in a hurry for their next performance. Registering the photo opportunity and taking the picture was a matter of very few seconds. I think I captured them quite well placed in relation to the background, but that was entirely a case of luck.

Some of you may not like the graffiti. Neither do I really, but I can't deny that sometimes graffiti gives a kind of rhythm and vividness to a dead wall, at least in photos. I hate the graffiti that has been scribbled on the wall of the fine old house where I live.

In a workshop you can see at least one of these musicians after they had joined their band and started to play. That photo was taken less than a minute later.

Here is a larger version.
