Is lovely – so long as it’s constructive; but it’s even more lovely when someone really gets your work.
I recently sent a copy of Crossing Poland to Christophe in France and I was overjoyed when he took time to write back to me…
I received your book two days ago, thank you very much.
I have looked at it from time to time, to enter slowly in the pictures, starting to think and express what I feel.
I never read the text before the picture (same with all books, I read forewords after the books!) and what is great with your work is that I really feel what you expected – sharing the journey! From my point of view, it works because these are casual photos. Nothing remarkable, just a few views that appear when we sit, bored, in a train, looking through the window from time to time. Some pictures are out of focus, like a memory which is not sure that what we saw was real. As you can understand I really like your work, maybe also because I love travelling, as when I was young that was my only escape from a not so exciting countryside.
I wish you all the best for your photos and you can keep me posted with your future project!
If my work excites, intrigues or otherwise draws out an emotion in you – drop me a line; I’d love to hear what you think!
