    Terrible… Les regards sont dans le vide, noyés… Il n’y a pas que le beau à voir, il faut aussi “fixer” ces images, tenter de plonger nos yeux dans ces yeux, pour ressentir le vertige du mal être… Et comprendre… L

    Don’t we all!
    Francoffer, since in the act of photographing we are freezing a slice of time, I often wonder what the next slice looked like. You were so close to the woman you photographed, did she become aware of your presence after you took this powerful shot? Did she come out of her deep inner preoccupation and look at you? Did she talk to you? Will we ever know why she looks so sad? Was she as sad as she looks-photography can distort reality? Is the geography of people’s face always a correct indicator of how they feel inside?

    I like taking candid portraits in particular using standard wideangle and getting very close to people. One approach I usually use is to get close to a stranger who has some special character or face expression or gesture about her or him that caught my attention and pretend taking pictures of something else or doing something out of context, try to avoid direct eye contact with the subject. I then wait, observe indirectly, make the camera setting right and guess roughly how low I shall bend my back and wait for the moment comes. Then, I act fast and press the shutter. I used more or less the approach to take this picture. When I noticed her, she was walking to the bus stop and then she stopped there. I waited for about 30 second or so to take this shot. You were so right, she was really into her deep thought. She didn’t really realise my presence at all. I took only one shot of her and then left.

    I believe we all have some moments that we couldn’t hide from our face or guesture no matter how good we are able to control ourselves.
