I have been so inspired by all the great street work i have seen over the past few months and decided to dedicate a day and see what i can find and shoot. Yesterday i spent most of the day walking London shooting people doing what they do.
I am human
I can love all people
But I can not be forced to love me.
I am a human ...
At the Bus Stop
This was taken at Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, PA. The man's name is Joe and I purchased the cup of coffee for him. It was freezing that day. ...
Lola, not the name of this little girl. Lola is a Javanese term, which means orphaned. He lives on the edge of Kalimas River which divides the city of Surabaya. ...
It's nothing as it seems,
the little that he needs, it's home
One uninvited chromosome,
a blanket like the ozone
It's nothing as it seems,
all that he needs, it's home
The little that he frees,
is nothing he believes...
Nothing as it seems, Pearl Jam
The wrong side of town
She lived on a curve in the road
An old tar paper shack
On the south side of the town
On the wrong side of the tracks
Crazy Mary, Pearl Jam
The Scavenger Family Portrait
One day i was invited to document a place where kids in their innocent and young state were already mandated to work, they are charcoal makers. I saw a lot of images in the place and sometimes i think of really getting here to witness their everyday lives. I didn't let myself to miss that invitation so I accompanied them. When we finally came to the place we were dismayed to see that no charcoals were there, even those makers, 2 months ago that business of charcoal was removed and that place was already demolished including their homes. I walked around to explore the place thinking if what really are those lives of the charcoal makers that's living there. While walking I entered a place where there were still several homes that are standing, and there I met the "Lizano" family. They have 7 children and Mr.Lizano's only work is to dig up garbages in that place. I asked them if why they were not included in that demolition, they said that they were demolished and that little home they have is just temporary. While we are talking I really felt Mrs.Lizano's grief and tribulations so I didn't hesitated, I gave them some amount to help, I told her "Nay I don't promise that I can help you out a 100% but I'll try my best to somehow help you more, we don't know, maybe when christmas comes there's a blessing that will come, also I really want to take some portraits of you and your whole family or give me a chance to just document you guys, also can i have your contact number so that people can directly contact you to reach out some help for you guys. The couple agreed so by that I started to take images of the family, while I'm taking their pictures, though I just gave the family a little amount, they still feel the joy because of those portraits of them that they're seeing.
For those who have a kind heart and ready to help the Lizano family, you can contact them on their personal mobile number 639095557002. When I have a chance to have sufficient funds I'm planning to also give them copies of their images.. ...
