I was thinking of an entry on this Valentine’s and the above photograph sprung to my mind. The focusing wasn’t pin-sharp, and the composition was chaotic. But upon closer inspection, there were actually five couples caught in a frame. And among the chaos, did you see one of the couples bitching about another?
The thing I like about visiting urban cities is that many things are happening in every moment, and the photographer captures one of those moments and study all of the mini dramas that were taking place. Also, I find the intrigue of steal-life photography allows the spectator of the final image to see more than the photographer at the scene itself.
That’s the beauty and what I like about stealing lives.
