There’s something natural in ellegance and also something ellegant in naturality. Maybe it has something to do with the inner peace built as the years gone by and the capacity of wearing comfortable clothes not minding about whatever people would or should or could say. Don’t you think?
This is the best portrait I’ve ever seen from you. The expression on the man’s face is extraordinary. And the negative space of his jacket opening, which shows the white sweater underneath, I love that.
I really like your blog in general.(imho, it really stands out). The photographs are good, the people captured display great taste, and they are depicted in a sympathetic way. (Btw, I found you blog via the blog of Thomas Mahon, Savile Row.)
I totally agree with Regina’s blog.It is that truism that “trying to hard”, just doesn’t work. This guy just looks great and I am quite sure he doesn’t give it much thought. Regina you’re right – there is something “elegant in naturality”. I like that comment!
I can comment on the light, the beauty of the colours, the wonderful contours. I completely understand the feeling of this somehow being transposed Medici portrait. I can’t ever touch upon that face, and I think that’s even saying too much.
Which I guess is what makes you a wonderful photographer. It’s so gratifying to know that there is someone out there who recognizes, connects, gets “it”. You can’t be praised enough.
Oh I love this! There is something so poignant in the images of older people. Something in their faces, that makes you wonder what they have been through and what they know. I love his hat and his coat. But mostly I am drawn to this image because of the way his face has been captured! This is lovely!
