merhaba hakki

i read your discussion with isabella with interest. i understand both points (and i have a son myself). on theoretical grounds, i agree with you though hakki. but why do i say 'theoretical' here? well, nothing in your foto, i really mean... nothing tells us the story you mention in your note. the photo is nice, but it does nt tell the story. look at it: the boy's cloths are modern and neat. his face looks rosy and healthy and he really looks proud to have your attention; and... i suspect, he thinks he looks cool with that cigarette. i believe, if i was trying to tell that story i would go for much more grain, stronger contrasts, different expression, possibly... even a different boy... (there must be plenty around judging from what you wrote). so, i disagree with the photo, but my green devil goes for the consideration and the story you are trying to tell.

warm regards,

Default To zmey: thanks krista

well I guess different people see different things in the same picture. me I see a sad kid with rings under his eyes trying to prove he's somebody with cheap flashy clothes and a fag. you see a pink healthy face and neat clothes. for me, the worker kids who try so hard to pretend they are cool party dudes are more poignantly eloquent of their condition than the ones who just wear the same rags going home.
