I do so like how you contruct your posts, Richard. I like this one a lot.
Thanks very much, Ashley – really nice to read that!
I like how you construct them too. 😉
Superb set, Richard. Reconstruction is such a strong idea here.
Thanks very much, Chris. Yes, it’s bothering me at the moment.
yup. great set 🙂
Thanks so much, Carla. 🙂
I read this as a brief but incredibly powerful photo essay.
Thanks so much, Melissa. Really glad it did something. Much appreciated.
Great set Richard, the teeth really stand out for me in Central Hotel (I), the combination of Central Hotel (II) being followed by Shadows and Light is quite moving and thought provoking. Despite the years between the photos being taken they fit remarkably well.
Thanks very much, Leon – really appreciate your comment. One of my old tutors said he thought we all have a kind of through-line in what we do, so that no matter what it is you can always see the person in the work. I’m not sure it applies to stuff going back to the Eighties, but in recent years maybe…
I always enjoy your process and result.
Thanks very much, Sally. Thanks for stopping by.
Shadows and Light is a very powerful photograph, Richard.
Thanks very much, Cheryl. It was taken when I’d just started taking the portraits and was still too nervous/ excited to ask people their names, so I’m ashamed to say I don’t know this man’s name.
Oh yes I noticed it was dated 2012, I’m glad I can see some earlier work.
An unsettling and tender tension in this presentation. Great work, Richard.
Thanks so much, Karen.
A profound transition through the passage of Central Hotel and back again.
Thanks very much, Patti!
An excellent collection!
Thanks very much – funny how something from 2012 can be right in 2015.
Wow, the compositions, lines, shadows, light… all join forces here to make visually powerful and thought-provoking piece. (Hope to do some catching up in the coming days. I’m much slower now (neurological condition) and have someone helping me put my comments and posts together (because of progressive form of expressive aphasia)–wanted you to know.
Thanks so much, Lemony. So sorry to hear about your condition – it must be really frustrating for you. Thanks for letting me know. All the best.
