I’ve been documenting Maria’s family for a number of years now. Here is family photography the way I like to see it. I like to convey the mood more anything. But I feel that the advantage of having a manual fast camera gives me the amazing opportunity of freezing a moment that happens naturally. The posed portraits? They are great. But in a way, those can be taken with any camera.
Those serious black and white moments. No posing. Just documenting history that’s happening in front of me. These are the kinds of photos that I cherish of myself from my childhood.
The grandma. Can you tell them apart? I have a hard time sometimes : )
This is from the series of family portraits I took of Maria and her family. I like this one because it’s slightly more fluid and less posed than the others. It’s alive.
