face to face

  

The Japanese subject is maybe one of the best ones, the subject who, realizing to be photographed, doesn't get agitated and restarts immediately to do what he was doing, allowing me to stop that image in the way I wanted. Impeccable actor of everyday life is a discreet observer who, aware of my presence, offers himself as an ideal model for those who are able to perceive his shy curiosity and catch his rhythm. We study each other reciprocally, i, through the viewfinder, and he, out of the corner of his eye. I get close slowly with respect...he, a little defensively, acts consequently as if he tried not to irritate me. It's a dance step. A meeting of sensitivities.
