This guy's photography is absolutely amazing. I love it.

Go here:  http://www.paulszynol.com/  look at the work and then come back.  I'll wait.  Take your time and really look.

Okay. This is how great documentary and street photograph looks to me. We can argue about all kinds of minutia but in the end the guy who goes out with a sharpened vision and crazy good curiosity gets the win.

Did I mention that you should go and see this guy's site?    http://www.paulszynol.com/

Thank you to Paul for sending me this link.

As I wonder among all the images on the web very few spark any emotional connection or tell a story like the photographs presented by Mr.Szynol. I will return to his albums for inspiration. Thanks for opening my eyes again to the meaning of art.

Thanks, great link.

Love this image. I think you've overwhelmed his website though :)

You are welcome. Hey Kirk, How do I get my name to appear here instead of the gibberish ? I only know how to connect through AIM which spits out gobbledygook...

That is a killer image. The Warsaw photos were my favorite as a group.

We may have slowed it down but it's worth waiting for...

Thanks Kirk, Szynol's work is incredible!

Neil Partridge said...

Thanks so much for that... having shot mostly B&W on my GF1 for a year or two (it helps steady my mind somehow)... the Syrian shopkeepers set makes me want to go and shoot some colour.

Thanks for sharing this. Treat of the day!

Some nice images there, but I would love to see them larger than the tiny website versions.

Thanks, Kirk, for introducing him to us. I'm with Poagao; I want to get lost in larger images.

While I was waiting for Paul's site to load, I was reminded of his photos on the Leica Blog mentioned in an earlier comment. Which in turn reminded me of another Leica Blog contributor f/Egor - another excellent street photographer with a photo-journalist's heart, and a journalist's turn of phrase - a mighty rare combination. I'd recommend this article for the uninitiated:

Thanks for another entertaining post.
