Endless News

By stevedexteruk
Beak Street in the Soho district of London. The street art on the left is by Gringa Que Rebola, a Brazilian artist while the artwork on the right is by Endless. I do not normally photograph people I know or ask permission, but this man is known to me and he was aware I was taking photographs of this scene and others next to it. So I think I would say this is a photograph taken in the street rather than a genuine candid street photograph. Taken in January 2016 with a Sony A7Rmk2 and a Zeiss 24-70 lens.

Interesting frame, thanks for the info about it too.

The contrast of yellow to the mostly grey background is very strong the man is the central piece of the photo and his is absorbed in the news of his newspaper.
Unfortunately, we seem to fail to realise how close is the book of NineteenEightyFour sixty years after its publication. Wars are still going on, sides and allies change drastically, the proles keep betting and filling stadiums.
The three figures fill the frame (for those who want to complain, there are almost three objects there too, the bike the lamp and the black iron box. Quite balanced then. I did wonder what the story could imply if the left side was cropped the lady and the lamp post were not in the frame anymore. It holds a sequence of cause and effect, read for right to left boy sells paper, man buys it and reads it. If M says anything, well that is the way people who write right to left read pics, lol. I imagine it would be a square format then... more balance raised to square power. Well then....
