I'm starting with my project for this course. don't konw where it will end, may be changing, but for now I'm doing portraits of people on the park in front of my home. It is Platt fields.
I ask permission, I make the pictures (usually two) and ask them their name and why they come to the park. For now I've only done these pictures and just two other people didn't give permission. I put the first because I made the wrong decision to take just one picture and it resulted with his eyes closed, a shame.
I think this work can be nice, especially through contact with people, many neighbors that i did not know. I still work in black and white, the colors do not serve me (for now).
Not very original, it's just show people, at a particular time in history, in a public place that I like. Just that. Perhaps a sociologist might use this for a deeper analysis on how and why we take refuge in this kind of "seminatural" places to escape for a moment from the city.
I share this for you to comment (not just for saying i like or i don't like, please explain why), THANKS
