Release, Syrian Migrant, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, 2005

In many of the conservative societies, it is extremely difficult for the young girls being photographed. While the conversation needed to allow such is complex, the courage within them to get in front of the lens is beyond my ability to both understand and describe. The latter however always impresses me as they step forward and walk in between a crowd to have their portraits made. 

From the minute I arrive to the second the shutter is released, a sense of urgency exists. We are going to collaborate, she will get her chance to be recorded for the sake of generations to come. This is perhaps why after the last frame is exposed there is a sense of release which is displayed as the girls walk away. Although my eyes have witnessed this on countless occasions, it has rarely been documented on film. 

While looking through the negatives two months ago I ran across this portrait of a young girl from Syria, and found inspiration in a body of work yet to be printed. Hers has given me yet another outlook on the work to be created starting next week in India. As the second to last exposure is made on each roll, the girls will begin walking away... and as they let out that sigh of relief the last frame will be made, recording perhaps their truest portraits. They will of course hear the shutter, and see my expression. I for one look forward to seeing their reactions, and hearing their laughter even more so.

+Chris Gouge A great analogy, I have used this approach when I'm reluctant to invade someones personal space. I focus on having an image to process instead of the experience of taking it.  ;))

Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If youread more

On Storytelling… “I always start with characters rather than with a plot, which many critics would say is very obvious from the lack of plot in my films – although I think they do have plots – but the plot is not of primary importance to me, the characters are”.- Jim Jarmusch Storytelling is an important part ofread more

Today I want to share my thoughts about my latest trip: The Venice Carnival.

Today starts the last weekend of celebrations of this magic event and if you will ever attend you will discover that there is so much more beneath those masks than you might think.

I wanted to share with you not only my emotions but (in perfect DreamsDiary style) some wonderful photographs of the event!

Talk soon!

Hi guys!

Today I wanted to share with you a journey through a different concept of workplace in some of the most characteristic developing country.

Street Photography isn't all about busy urban spaces! It's about telling stories and capturing the essence of the people you are framing.

This is why with these fantastic pics we wanted to draw the attention to one of the most characteristic elements of a country's culture and tradition: food.

Enjoy!
