Thanks Steve.

Lighting, yes, probably.

His eyes tell so much on these photos. More than words could.


yes...

and here as in other discussions...always the question of whether we need to know more, and if we did...would this add or subtract from the image...


I, a believer that the image should speak,  and need no words...

but knowing something about some of these kids... would enable the onlooker to see them differently,


oh btw... I have Regianni singing le deserteur, with the preface of the words of " le dormeur du val" de Rimbaud...


I assume that song was always performed with the words of the poem...before...


thank you,

Steve


Thanks again.

Steve,

N°2 is a very moving photo, Jordan seems to be so lost in his thoughts.

Technically, I sometimes wonder about the "sharpness plane" of some of your shots - it looks quite unpredictableto me. For example on n°2, the badge on the cap and the eyes seem perfectly in focus, and so are the right ear, and the skin of his neck. But the jaw seems not to be so sharp when it should be as it is located in between the former two extremes. Hence a question, did you "fiddle" with the skin rendition of the jaw? or is it like this on the negative and the result of direct lighting ?
"A curious mind wants to know", as the phrase will go. ;-)





no fiddlings Philippe...

shot...as is,

so perhaps due to lighting...


thanks for looking...

a fascinating young man...


perhaps you could fathom his diagnosis...  it will be lethal,

Steve
