A field trip to Mexico...
 
A little link to some pictures taken by a photographer based in Canada, who, on a whim, found himself exploring Mexico.
These are portraits.
But portraits like I have never seen before.
They are not mere pictures of faces, but moments shared with people, with beings.

What else to say?
Not much.
Just follow the <a href="http://silverandlightphotography.com/lungs/mexicotrip/index.html">link</a> and see for yourself.

By the same photographer, <a href="http://www.lungliu.com/">Lung S. Liu</a> there are the <a href="http://silverandlightphotography.com/lungs/chinavietnam/">China & Vietnam pictures</a>, taken earlier, but nonetheless poignant.

Kind regards,
Julia

thanks for the link Julia, didn't have a chance to see his other galleries yet, but have enjoyed Mexico, I got a very pleasent feeling from them, watched the gallery and smile. Not all images are great IMO, but as a whole very enjoyable.

Thanks for the heads up, Julia. I agree with Peter in that when this chap is "on", something passes... I suspect he's shooting with a Leica rangefinder (can't prove it but it has that look...) He handles bokeh (shallow DOF) with consumate skill - just enough but not too much. He's a pro and also does weddings "in an artistic way" with a woman partner. His Vietnam portraits are cool too. There is a gentleness about them and a way that the subject seems to jut forward from the frame slightly (another Leica trait...)
Anyway I really appreciate the link, well worth it.
Cheers,
Francis
