Looking at this picture made me think of waiting for a polaroid image to get developed. The more I look the more I keep finding details. I go inch by inch and observe and get engaged in the action. This image is humming and visually it keeps me going from one place to another looking for more clues.
But it’s not only this that goes into my mind. It’s what “art” is when we talk about photography. I think that an artistic photograph is one that keeps the viewer engaged and curious and the mind alert. It does not have to do with any formula; it’s not a dreamy picture, it’s not an impressionistic one, it’s not blurry or “unfinished” processing wise or trying to step out of any conventions. Far from it.
I totally agree for instance with what Marcel Proust wrote :
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

I love art that tells a story, and this is a perfect example... there's so much to look at, without it be busy and confusing. It's well balanced, and wonderfully processed. Love this image.

I like that he paints his own background. Nicely composed.

I love this one. First there is the wonderful geometry and subdued palette of the whole. Then there are the parts: the men and their work, the many interesting architectural and other details, the situation itself (this looks to be a small city apartment in a very industrial area). There is so much to enjoy and explore - almost too much and then again not enough (kind of like a very long but very good book).

Brilliant.
