Ok… i’m a week late but better late than ever… lol…Let’s talk about culture… It’s one of the main reasons why photography is so amazing… images from different countries can travel and people who never left their hometowns can catch a glimpse of what happens in very different places with very different people. Of course in older days that was much more important than today where you can really have windows all around the planet using the web. This shot is kinda controversial because is not actually about a culture but it’s about the death of culture in these new days with it’s new ways of mixtures where all cultures becomes the same… it was shot in NY at the subway…He was playing a really sad song but noone was really listening. In other times maybe his music could cheer people and make a difference but there he was as invisible as one can get…

Another week another challenge. Another very subjective challenge. This can be good. We can find many different meanings for a theme. So i’ll start this challenge with food for thought. What kinds of hopes and dreams does this man have? And what were his childhood hopes? Can you tell if he achieved his dreams and got what he hoped to get? Don’t answer too fast. Maybe he did. Maybe playing in a Subway in New York is more than he imagined someday. In other hand maybe he didn’t. Maybe this is just where he ended up and those eyes are as empty as they look. Who knows? Maybe if i asked him at the time of the shot i could tell you guys now….

To continue this week’s challenge here is a shot i took in NY’s subway which is a place full of opportunities…
