There is a sense of mystery here. Looking at this image one never knows what this action truly represents; keeping a secret or is the subject asking us to shut up?
While the image suffers in quality – the artifacts and digital noise are aplenty, the raw feel to this image in fact adds to the ambience. Graphically, the image is split between left and right, from darkness to light. In that sense one gets a sense of hope (assuming of course one reads a photograph from left to right just as most of us read text from left to right).
Nikita Mehta, the photographer, hasn’t posted anything recently and I wonder why.
I’ll often post images here that are interesting, curious and even spectacular. Would you also like to have your images showcased on this blog? If so, join my Flickr community group also called Tiffinbox. Thoughts, suggestions, opinions always welcome, so please leave your comments below.
