"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

ordinaryimages from Kentucky Bluegrass, United States

I remember that song and the story of immigrants is both sad and full of hope. What is remarkable is the photograph...from the long shadows that tie together the foreground, and the rhythm of light and shapes gently anchoring the figures to the far space. best…jf
