On the Street…University Place, New York

7816university5014

I see this woman in my neighborhood occasionally ( usually when I’m on my bike, this was my first chance to photograph her).

 

She’s always wearing some version of this splatter pattern on every item she’s wearing.

 

I wonder if anyone here knows her story.

 

Shots like this are challenging because it’s tempting to jump to conclusions about her economic situation (which none or few here know the facts) but all that we do know is that she has a wonderful eccentricity.

 

I don’t know what kind of comments are appropriate for a photo like this other than something like “more power to her”. Photographers like Lissette Model and Diane Arbus made their careers shooting people on the fringes of society but I wonder if those type of photos today feel informative or exploitive?

 

Maybe I’m overthinking but I do love her commitment to a creative expression of her personality.

It’s such a fine line between “just right” and “too much” and this look is just on the right side of that line

Love that collar paired with a very subtle look, takes it to a whole new level.

Back in India

Today is my first day back in India!

 

Mumbai all this week and Kolkata the week after.

 

Any scenes in either city?

 

Any Goths in Kolkata or or Rockabilly in Mumbai or something else I need to see?
