Love the photo, but I wonder what's he writing?


Blogger said ... (10:29 PM) : 

Beautiful image. I like that we have both the big words of the graffiti on the wall, and the small words on the sheet. The energy of the artist is wonderful.

OpenID said ... (12:57 AM) : 

I'd love to see more street art, but I guess there are other blogs fo that. This photo is great the composition of the black vs. white really makes it personable.


Blogger Profoundly Superficial said ... (1:18 AM) : 

Very cool. Great photo!!


Blogger anthony said ... (1:23 AM) : 

Alive, dramatic. Thanks.


Blogger kaushi said ... (2:01 AM) : 

I luv your photos. They are always very expressive and has something special about them. Looking at the photos on your blog has sharpened my eye and now I tend to look at people in a more "total look" kind of way.


Blogger SOFIA said ... (2:07 AM) : 

I like him kedy))


Blogger TussahSilk said ... (2:39 AM) : 

Love that this picture is more than fashion: it's art.
Love that the subject seems unaware of you taking his photo.
Love the juxtaposition of the large text and the small.
Love the black & white picture of a black guy writing on white paper.
Love the energy of art in the making.

Generally, I just love this picture. I keep coming back to it.


Anonymous TITI said ... (3:39 AM) : 

Très belles photos

Anonymous JLS said ... (7:30 AM) : 

He looks good, but what is he writing? Is this some kind of street performance?


Anonymous l'habitué said ... (7:32 AM) : 

It's always great to see an artist in action.
Great pic.


OpenID auxpaysdesmerveilles said ... (7:54 AM) : 

Great picture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:07 AM) : 

Such a striking image. It makes you want to know more. Art often leaves one with questions not answers. This photo is elevated to that place.


Anonymous James Frances said ... (8:16 AM) : 

I love street art when done correctly


Blogger beths said ... (8:49 AM) : 

Puts me in mind of some Bill Hayward photos, from _Bad Behavior_ and so on. [That's a good thing!]


Blogger *Liya* said ... (8:55 AM) : 

i like taking photos of people when they are so immersed in what they are doing, they dont notice you... Like when a photographer is shooting..


Anonymous Mery said ... (9:06 AM) : 

So, if fashion is about passion and self-expression then this man has got both.
Also I noticed the functionality of his clothing - jeans inside boots so they won't get dirty, gloves in back pockets, hair covered by a hat, long sleeves for more comfortable painting? :)


Blogger Eryl said ... (9:47 AM) : 

Oh my, he seems to be so immersed: completely in his zone. The texture of the wall is wonderful, especially set alongside the texture of his sweater.


Blogger vintage1944 said ... (10:22 AM) : 

Great photo.Love the energy expressed here.


Blogger SucceedingatFailing said ... (11:15 AM) :

Blogger Aérostat D'or said ... (11:00 PM) : 

Love the distressed bouncing souls and the fit of the pants but not digging the freshman in art school Basquiat rip.


Blogger Paul said ... (11:08 PM) :

There are few things sexier than a person truly in the flow of his or her work.

Blogger Tony Post No Bills | Washington DC said ... (3:49 PM) : 

I love this shot.and the boots and the jeans. It would be super extra cool if a blazer was thrown in there. But do you really see artist wearing a blazer. Kudos on the layering also wish I could see the scarf.

this beats your skateboarder with the fake distressed motorcycle jacket by a mile. "cool" isn't something you buy off the rack. this guy is dripping with "cool."

i think your photograph/art of him making art is more interesting than his art.
