I love this

This photo was taken a little before sunset; the warm light, the red tomatoes, and this guy’s expression make it one of my all time favorite photos. I love environmental portraiture like this and how one image can tell so much of a story.


This is probably the best photo I have ever taken. That may sounds like a dramatic statement but I have such a strong connection with this image. I was a little protective about sharing this portrait because it is likely that I don’t have the right words to explain why I love it so much. I shot this at a market in Blantyre, Malawi this January and initially this guy was pretty shy but he warmed up to us quickly.
Once in a while, the camera is able to capture real expressions and that is what keeps me shooting. I was just talking to a friend about how this photo has raw beauty and sometimes you have to get a little off the grid to get images like this. I am so happy my camera was with me this evening.

Any thoughts?
