Oddly enough, I have some of the most genuine and authentic conversations with strangers. Perhaps it’s due to the fact that there is a sense of security in knowing that their mere presence is transient. What’s more fascinating is the stories these individuals tell, the insight they share, and the accompanying moments of reflection in our discourse. I had such a chance encounter when I asked for a photograph while walking through the French Quarter. It wasn’t until after our conversation that I learned the magnitude of legendary street photographer @louismendesphotography. It’s that anonymity and discovery that I love about street photography. (side note: this is my favorite photograph)
“Everyday I peer out my cage, thinking of the war I’m about to engage and so far I’ve survived this game for the kings. But in the depths of my mind I’ve come to realize, I’m breathing to die and I’m dying to breathe. When will the day come that I’m removed from my feet and like all of my opponents, I’m forced to kneel to this king? Whenever it does, I won’t bare remorse in my eyes. There will only be hate for my captives and hope for revenge in a spiritual life.”
