From the inner city series in my gallery "Sycamore Street Hill", this man was busy doing nothing.
As a rule I try not to take documentary images without my subjects being aware of my presence and camera. It makes for a less confrontational meeting, and most likely has saved me from many an angry response and beating. This man went to efforts to be indifferent to me. So this was my capture of him. As an additional note, I love the graffito on the door frame, especially the counting of 1 to 10 and the names written.
Taken with a Nikon F with 50mm F2.0 Nikkor on Kodak Plus X film, 1969, in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.
Feel free to download, just give me photo credit.
Very nice capture, he seems quite tense in his indefference ! The comments you give to your photos are very important, if I may add. The captures really come to life with them.
Studied indifference, perhaps, to the photographer, but certainly intent on something or someone.
