698 – B&W Photography

The arrival of the next issue of B&W Photography is usually eagerly awaited and Issue 267 was no different. Like all of the magazines I receive, I’ve paid for it so I’m going to read it from cover to cover. Usually there is an article that makes me think, and this month it was a piece about photographer Alexander Diaz and pictures from her portfolio; https://alexdiazphoto.com/section/46584-Bus-Culture-of-Latin-America.html

It wasn’t the beauty of the start landscape, or the bitting poverty she illustrated it was the type of photographs he was able to take. Culture is not the same in the UK clearly, but there are a lot of pictures of character to be taken that show life today, from the rough sleeper to the shop owner stood in doorway.

He (Diaz) acknowledges that he spent time (up to a month) living in areas so that people got to know him and to relax in his presence when he was taking their picture. I would love to do something like that, but in my home town (I don’t want to travel too far). I think that IK am going to start carrying my SLR on my lunch time walks, I want to be obvious that I am carrying a camera – this really does fly in the face of what I wrote yesterday about being discrete. I think this time discretion has gone out of the window. I am going to do this.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
