FOGG Notes: I met him in downtown Havana selling paintings.  Actually he was scratching out a piece with chalk of a mural our tour had stopped to look at on the side of a building.  Since the guide was talking in all Spanish I started walking around and that’s when I seen him.  I walked up, leaned against the wall where he was and watched him for a minute.  He looked up and started saying something in Spanish to which I replied that I didn’t understand.  He said English and proceeded to show me his work.  1/2 I didn’t care for but the other 1/2 I found very striking.  I asked him if I could take his photo and ask a few questions and he said “Ok, as long as I don’t have to pose.”  Not wanting to miss this opportunity I said “cool” but found it hard to get a good picture of him.  Keeping to his request, I didn’t want to ask him to look at the camera, as my friend was sitting to his camera left shoulder and he always had his head sideways.  I was about to go crazy and trying to think of every which way I could to get him to look my way without asking…but in the end I just got lucky and snapped away.  I personally think the above picture is one of the best I have taken so far for the Faces Series.  Just the color, pose and facial expression was perfect!

    His eyes cut through you in the first image. Really great work. I hope in my own travels I’m able to capture something so touching.
