Two Chances

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS 1/1250 second F/2.8 ISO 125 6 mm


"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

Göran from Skanör, Sweden

The light conditions seem to have been very harsh. It is an interesting motive but maybe a somewhat softer treatment could have isolated the standing person a little better?

Christian Richer from Le Havre, France

This gallery of portraits that you offer each day, the treatment that you apply, rigorous and radical, eventually giving me the impression of living in a fairy tale, with you ... Streets, a city created by Mariana ... It's strange and pleasant ...
