Стояла, оторопев, и спрашивала себя, как, как я не видела это здание раньше?!! Я не видела это здание ни у кого из блогеров, не видела в подборках самых красивых домов города, а это несправедливо! Кстати, в здании расположен институт кино и телевидения.
Сегодня пятница - значит пора определиться с планами на выходные. Серый Питер меня удручает, но что поделать 🤷🏻♀️
В Новой Голландии @newhollandisland откроют каток. +7 это конечно забавно, зато обещают угощать мороженым и провести концерт.
В Музее уличного искусства @strtartmuseum проведут ретроспективу известнейшего русского уличного художника Паши 183 - всем любителям стритарта будет интересно!
А мы уже сходили на Фантастических тварей, остались в восторге и горячо рекомендуем посмотреть в кино!
Всем уютных выходных! 🍁 🍂 #saintpetersburg#petersburg#vscospb#like4like#city#street#strideby#beautiful#architecture#architecturelovers#architectureporn#tower#autumn#mosaic#icon
Pushkar Camel Fair : as charming as off-putting.
I was in Pushkar just before the start of its Camel Fair.
It seemed like a great opportunity to capture camel trading in the sands of this holy town.
Surprisingly, there were hundreds of photographers on site already, and much more equipped than I was.
As I got to the fair the first morning for sunrise, photographers were already running everywhere, shooting in all directions like ducks without head.
They would get kids by the shoulders, push them against a tree or a camel, have them pose in a particular and unnatural way, then burst shoot, give ten rupees, and go away without a single real look at them.
I was in shock. Angry to be there and be just like one of them to the eyes of the locals.
I saw worldwide photographers competing for the most sensational pictures, godless and lawless, utilizing the poverty of people to shoot amazing faces and situations that don’t even look like the reality.
I vanished from this landscape and sat down with a family. Slowly, kindly, we approached each other and I proposed the father a portrait of him as the sun was rising behind him, and some family portraits.
At sunset the same day, I came back I found the mother of the family. I offered her the prints of their portraits and in the way she hold the pictures, asked me for an envelope to protect them, and hold my hand and stand my gaze, I knew it meant a lot to her.
I am disgusted by the way photographers come and use the poverty of the locals to get sensational pictures, sometimes totally out of context, the way they throw ten rupees at the most beautiful people to get a portrait and a pose without even having a look, a handshake, a word at them.
I do not wish to steal people’s image either.
But if someone lets me do a portrait, I want it to do justice to the moment and the dignity of the person.
I do not post portraits that take away dignity, and I never use people in the way I photograph them.
All portraits I publish are unpaid, and the fruit of a relationship created before or after the shot.
What I believe is important is not only to shoot beauty.
It is to shoot the reality, with dignity, and with humanity.
