Who said street photography must be processed in black and white? Made it b/w as well, but... Saw this mid aged man yesterday in town - in colour. It's real, no posing.

The sad side of life. Triste My eye goes along the corridor... maybe there is a better life waiting him behind the blurred corner... or not. Very strong...

Hello together!
Thank you for your absolutely interesting assessement!
Thanks also for your compliment.


Yes, this situation followed me through the whole night. I dreamed of it. I dreamed that after the conversation he gave me his hand for saying good bye.

It was simple. Came around the corner with my girlfirend and down that stair. He turned away and told me: "I will clean it all after... Leave no rubbish, 'cause of the children"
I told him, "man, no stress but it's good you clean up your place after it. Wish you all good." Yes, it was cold this night. Maybe +1°C

I passed him, had my cam in my hands and went down the stairs with my girl.
At the bottom i stopped for a moment. Looket at my girl and told her that i have to go back. Need to do this. She agreed without any words.

Then i asked him to take a shot without his face. I didn't see his face before. But then he lifted his hood and i saw his face. It was gaunt. His eyes where tired and without any joy of life.
He agreed a shot from behind. No posing, continued, took his second needle and began to sting without be disturbet of my presence. This was my moment. Had not much time to compose, so i put him in the left corner. The infinity of the corridor goes down and to the right part.

After this shot i went down a few steps to get his eye level.
And then he began to tell me his life...
As a child he got beaten.
Death of his father, shortly after this same with his grandfather. Then his friend at the working place. His mum has similar problems with drugs etc.

Minute after minute he told me what his heart was going over.
After a while i noticed that he had problems to concentrate.
