"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

a great graphic B&W - the lines all intersecting, then going up a stairway to a mysterious place. Well sighted, and great image.

You emprisonned him beautifully with those lines running on him and no room to fly away ! Happily, there's some light up the stairs - makes the shot even better in its compo !
