"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."
~ Andre Kertesz

JacklineG from Béarn, France

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

All your tradmark quirkiness. The kids head angle, the guy with what looks like a mullet/ponytail hairdo,the now hiring and 50% signs. All making a very odd combo.

NaDu from Köln, Germany

Can't understand who or what can be hired. A photographer (hopefully not the children)? So, maybe again failing the connotations, I formally like it with it's light an the many photos inside the photo.

i really like (not only the processing ;-)) ), mainly how you are

shots from real life!
... I hope my english is well enough to communicate my meaning!

7 Jan 2011 6:32pm

L'explorateur from Vancouver, Canada

Very funny! It looks like the kid is posing for an artistic photo! And the father is smiling while saying to the photographer "Yeah, I know, he's great. We love him. Are you going to give him the job?" :D

7 Jan 2011 6:47pm

@L'explorateur: not like that . kid was bored and was looking all around the place, while daddy is looking at computer with photographer to decide which pictures were going to be printed..... I was waiting almost an hour to get my passport pictures.. I got like this baby, so impatient, so nervous, that I simply took out my little camera and started shoting to calm down ;)

Albert from Hamburg, Germany

Fantastic scenario with the real kid among all the photographed kid, and the dad who turned his back. I like you BW processing too, the high contrast and the dark corners.

7 Jan 2011 8:18pm

Willem from Noord-Scharwoude, Netherlands

Wow what a great sharpness, beautiful photo

7 Jan 2011 8:50pm

8 Jan 2011 12:22am

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

That photographer has a lot of patience to work with so many young children and capture such great photos. It always makes me wonder what the photographer had to do in each case to get the child to flash those "pearly whites." Great composition with great light and textures!
