Samuel - Homeless Austin -

    Newer Older

    Homeless Austin. This is a project that I need to follow through more often.
    I spent about 40 minutes talking to Samuel. He is 70 years old. He was born
    in Sweet water, Texas.

    Samuel is a very religious man. In fact he was reading the bible when I took this
    picture. According to him he is a Mathematician, computer programmer and a priest. Do I believe him? yes, I do.

    My project is Homeless Austin. I plan to walk around Austin, Texas and interview homeless people and ask them 10 questions take a simple portrait and have a good chat. I'm doing this project because I was homeless once for a few months and I find it very eye opening to be on the streets with no place to sleep, eat or shower.

      Stunning portrait, love the negative space, the incredible detail on his face. The lighting is wonderful, it really suits the sombre mood.

      If this was a painting it would be a Rembrandt. Perfect.

      A really powerful image. Good luck with the DPS assignment

      Technically excellent, visaully compelling and emotionally charged.
      Good luck with your homeless project, hope you are never on the streets again through no choice.

      I saw this on the Digital Photography School forum it was right under my submission for the assignment "First Half of 2012". This is such a well composed image. I am trying to incorporate more people shots into my work and I admire those of you that can get these kinds of shots set up so well.
