Today’s #LiveandLifePhoto @Instagram Takeover by @emencher of @Hikari.creative concludes with a photo of his own:⠀
Photo: The Harpist by Eric Mencher, 2016⠀
“I chose this photo of a harmonica player on the streets of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, primarily for its similarities with the Ilse Bing photo posted earlier. Notice the one eye looking out, just a hint of the harmonica, and the curve of the hat. A picture that asks questions (Who is he? What music is he playing? What do his hands hide? Does he mind having his picture taken?) and possibly answers a few too. Ultimately, perhaps the formal qualities and the textures and the light all contribute to an image that is worth paying attention to.”⠀
Join us this week as our 5-day #LiveandLifePhoto takeover by #HikariCreative continues with Ako Salemi @f64s125 as tomorrow’s guest.⠀
