Honolulu, USA 2007. by Luc Rabaey 5 years ago

Honolulu, USA 2007.

Although unemployment is minimal in Honolulu, there are some street
people -as in any other city-. Through the years I decided not to photograph
homeless people anymore -and certainly not from the back-. I could make
exceptions in case of a reportage in which I had their confidence and
permission. When I saw this situation I was unaible to resist temptation; the
man with his whole property literally walking in the gutter and separated by
obstacles from the man with the briefcase, walking in the opposite direction.
Let’s say it’s my photographer’s side, trying to show the beauty in ugliness -or
the ugliness in beauty-, the surreal in society. Or the surreal in
images.

Street photographs are mirror images of society, displaying "unmanipulated" scenes, with usually unaware subjects.
