You know, you would want me to criticize so you can get better, but it's hard. This piece is the perfect example.
I understand photography even less than I understand painting and drawing. I believe I can discern between artistic photograph and someone who just shoots random photos, and you're definitely an artist for me. Sometimes, I can compliment you on composition, lights and shadows, tell you what I feel looking at the photo... but hardly criticize. Your photos either catch my heart, or leave me indifferent - but the latter is about us having different objects that interest us, not about you doing something wrong.
But I can tell you this: What I love the most about your photos is the person you reveal yourself to be through them. Everyday person who shoots his mother in the fields, his brother in the sandmine, touching image of a mother nursing her child at a horribly looking place. A man who finds it difficult to leave home because his son follows him like a puppy, or waits by the door. A man who shoots his rather handsome, "cool" looking friend smoking... with his little child in the background and names the photo "Unforgiven".
I don't know great an artist these photos make you - but I know they make you a great person, and because of that, they speak to me...
