And passing from pole to … pole, here is a photograph that comes from my most recent fashion shoot made with Leijla Foss. It is clear that my experience on the street ends up influencing even my most commercial photography, and I think this is an interesting observation of how street photography can become a resource even for those who deal with other types of photography.
Notice how the entry pole on the right almost helps to awaken the attention of the observer and therefore to make it enter the scene that is even more dimensioned, in a certain sense more real, precisely because of this awareness of the place.
A photograph taken somewhere in Oaxaca. I was on a Toyota that darted while I shot. Obviously my attention was drawn to the chapel of San Judas Tadeo, a saint who has many devotees all over Mexico, and to the billboard with the numbers above in yellow. I found human elements perfectly placed. These are the photos that I love most because they have a composition that you don’t expect, that breaks on the left and doesn’t show everything.
Take a look once again how the poles help inside the frame.
