Kadırga-istanbul 2012

The road, a ball and the usual kids. But in this photo Faruken Bayraktare took a peculiar aspect: not the usual run of disordered many legs for the ball, but the singular relationship between “one” child and the balloon. The others are spectators, not participating in the game, and each shows a different attitude: Some people are sitting, perhaps because they are less good at virtuosity, some people are ready to take over, there are those who are standing but with a passive behavior. And different states are well diversified by the different position that the photographer has assigned to them in the frame: the main actor in the foreground and then gradually more distant others, in relation to the role they are having with the game

Who knows what is intrigued by the “Child with guitar”? The cut of the photo does not allow us to understand, and this “mystery” is one of the things that make the photo interesting and enjoyable.
Perfect choice of the frame from the bottom, with the wide angle that puts strong emphasis on child and guitar. It ‘s just guitar to emphasize the peculiarity of the situation: how many children we see a lot of photos flying around the ball? Here, however, looking at the picture, we realize that there are also small Jimi Hendrix. Wonderful expression captured the seriousness of the child: if the guitar is not a toy, one would believe that he is going to perform for a concert.
