We Are Not Deceived

Marco, here on vacation from Stüggart, inspects the Rolexes, Omegas, Longines, Rados, Zodiacs and Gruens on the Cambodian street merchant’s tray. His cute little daughter, Marie Lisa, points to one, just the right size.
“How much?” he asks.
“Ten Euro,” the Cambodian replies.

The purchase brings smiles all around. Why? Because we are not deceived.

brilliant photo! i love the expressions on the faces, and the pink watch is beautifully featured in front. the title and final line are a poem.

Many thanks, I deeply appreciate your interest in my work...

American! But becoming less and less so as time goes by...

You seem very well educated and I dont really get to see that, maybe because my generation is usually lazy (I'm 18). I think your artwork is very lovely and it catches a lot of great emotion, I've always wanted to be a photographer, but taking the class in highschool made me think otherwise. All I wanted to do was catch the moment in my camera, not texture, shape and all of that. Keep up the good work.

Thanks. Don't let one class put you off. Once you get the basics, photography is a matter of just doing it until you get to the point where you're truly happy with what comes out. Nothing good ever comes easy, though.

I was very happy with the work I did during school. I like just taking my camera and just shooting. I love using black and white film and taking pictures of run down buildings and such, maybe too pop-culture?

In art it's often said that you don't choose the subject, rather it's the other way around. Best to be attentive to what speaks to you, what grabs you.
