“The Three In-laws” – Always consider to ask!

Posted in Portrait, Turkey

Nine out of ten times I ask the people before taking a portrait. Sometimes I think this will not work, most of the times people agree and you can make a (group) portrait like this one. It is full of mixed emotions of a kind difficult to catch in a candid. So yes I’m a no-candid man.

Bursa - Turkey - May 2012 Oh yes and I break a rule here: “Never make photo’s of people eating.”

These two men where looking at me while I was looking around on a street in Bursa. Showed them my camera to try if they would agree with a portrait. Well, they where really proud and open for a picture.

This one is for Akbar, a source of inspiration from my home town The Hague (Holland).

I do have some mixed feelings about graffiti, these from Barcelona are great pieces of Art but the last one gives some food for thought…

A portrait from my favorite street in Barcelona: Avinguda de Mistral.

I met this elderly man with his headphones and asked him what he was listening, he replied: “Radiolé només la música!!” non stop, uninterrupted music from Spain.

In Bursa I met this man and looked at his business. There was nothing to buy for me there but he was so happy and proud to have a chat with me and was open for a few pictures.
