THE STORY BEHIND THE IMAGE

While in the Mississippi Delta combing the country side for a photograph, I came across this sleeping dog. Quietly I approached him so not to wake him up. Then suddenly a gust of wind, and the dog woke up, confused to see this woman standing in front of him with her camera. I always appreciate small gifts from the gods, such as this wind. -- Magdalena Solé

THE STORY BEHIND THE IMAGE

One evening, I was walking through the beautiful Gion district in Kyoto where geishas rush, usually on foot, from one appointment to the next. Photographers with giant cameras are always on the ready to see if they can capture a glimpse of a Geisha. I stopped walking to observe the spectacle of hunting Geisha from a distance. Poor women, I thought. As always I carry my Leica with a 35 mm lens, definitely no Paparazzi material. Suddenly, to my surprise, this taxi just stopped in front of me. Someone’s flash went off behind me and I took this picture, which became my favorite of a Geisha: Her beauty is still intact, but she abandoned for an instance her traditional and professional smile, and revealed a hint of anxiety over the Paparazzi in the distance. She never saw me take her picture. - Magdalena Solé

THE STORY BEHIND THE IMAGE

I am in Cuba and stopped at this little store in the country side. A chicken that was walking in and out of the store dragged my gaze to the interior.  What I spotted was this nun as a gust of wind lifted her apostolnik. I always find wind very auspicious in photographs. It reminds me of the brevity of the instant - Magdalena Solé

THE STORY BEHIND THE IMAGE

Blackbirds are the iconic bird of the American South. I am equipped with an umbrella, to prevent bird droppings on my Leica with its 35mm lens. Hardly the classic lens for wildlife photography. I am mesmerized by these birds. There is only a fraction of second between the time they disperse in the sky and when they still sit on the ground. One has to move very quietly so they don’t fly away prematurely, before the frame is set in the viewfinder. Actually, I had to hold my breath and become invisible many times over before the shot succeeded - Magdalena Solé
