Who?

Who?

Who? ©2011 Geir Ertzgaard

I don’t know who he is, nor his age. He’s probably a little younger than me, which means he was a teenager in the Seventies. I don’t know his history, what dreams he dreams or nightmares he lives through. What I know, is that he gives of his time, that he meets me and my camera with a friendly smile, and that somehow we can relate.

 

It happens in Cambodia all the time. Without a common language the only way of contact is through shared time,  a smile and a handshake.

But who he is? I really don’t know.

    What a beautiful tribute to this man..and to being in the here and now. Maybe it doesn’t matter who he once was..or what he once might have done…maybe all that matters is who and what he is now! Lovely portrait!

    Liker. Flott blikkontakt og fargetoner. Fin og dus bakgrunn som framhever Mr Who. Litt forstyrrende med venstre tommelfinger nede til høyre, men det er en flisespikkerbagatell…
    Ellers liker jeg ikke no særlig «Disqus». Veien blir omstendelig for å kommentere.

      Det rare med tommelfingeren er at hvis jeg hadde kuttet den vekk, så hadde bildet blitt et straight portrett uten noen form for stedlighet (nytt ord ja) i seg, så jeg lar den være. Han er jo tross alt skapt med den. For meg er det blikk-kontakten som betyr noe, og tanken på den historen denne fyren har å fortelle, hvis vi noen gang er i stand til å snakke sammen – eller den historien jeg slipper å høre….

      Thanks Tom. His innocense is all I can see, and I should let him be just that, not judgemental about what might have been, but to see him for what he is.
