Photographer's Note

Continuation on my theme about the TE members I admire. To know what this is all about please read the introductory notes on the first post of the series.

Gal’s photography has a great deal to do with the individual. It’s certainly not by chance that more than 30% of his posts here present just a single person across the entire frame. And they are not close portraits or something similar... For me, Gal searches for the most intimate portrait of the human role in the present social environment. He guides us through a journey where the main actors may be you and me, facing time (hence the preeminent clock in my picture) and the inner complex strength of our own memories. Every single person in Gal’s photos is full of a psychological charge. They always seem to be going somewhere – more that 20% of his pictures show us a walking man – and it’s that destination to where the whole picture flows. I often see them as wanderers, pilgrims of this modern society who walk not to go anywhere but mainly to discover themselves.

Gal has been at this same place last July and was in my mind when I shot this traveler at the fluvial station. I don’t know where is heading too, but if you ask Gal, he might share with you a philosophy class built on top of these simple human steps.

Obrigado Amigo pela sensibilidade das tuas imagens. Elas são constante fonte de inspiração onde a minha imaginação vem beber. É um prazer seguir a tua visão deste maravilhoso mundo.
