The photo stop the imagine, here seems to have been a stop for the people in the photo (although Simon Mak, the photographer says that they started posing for him).
The result – in any case – are three figures with his gaze fixed that give a particular tone to the picture.
All this dropped into the chaos of their market stand: lamps mixed with neon, fish overflowing from plastic bins and displayed on flat wicker, bags hanging, peeling walls, a multitude of buckets has a little ‘everywhere. If Street Photography means telling portions of life and places in the city, with this photo so rich in detail Mak Simon took us right “inside” the Wet Market. (rewiew by Carlo Traina )
A photo very natural, without too many “buildings” or geometric techniques, but can well document the chaotic life of big cities. There are different people who compose the photo, but each is a figure separate, with looks that do not cross each other under any circumstances. The same road in a hurry to work (or return home) with each locked in their own individuality and thoughts.
The look of a challenge: what the kid is doing with himself and with his skateboard. Even if Gabi decided to stop the image with a very short time, the sense of dynamism is all there, with his arms and legs looking for a balance uncertain, and skate that – though it is “frozen” in the air – seems to twirl. Finally, the effect of two beautiful big umbrellas that “frame” the jump of the boy.
