Baby Got Barack   Leave a comment

Why would Baby vote for Barack Obama? I wonder whether Baby will learn what his/her Parents gave up for Utopia of Obama’s socialism.

Nice Lady of LaRouche   Leave a comment

Looking at this candid shot of the nice, cheerful  LaRouche supporter you would think that she wants your donations for some charitable cause. You would never guess about wild mix of ideas that this group propagates. They hate Obama but Franklin D. Roosevelt is their demigod. They are afraid of fascism (picturing Obama as Hitler) but they like Stalin. They fight for freedom and strongly support Putin’s rule in Russia. Picture is deceiving.

Occupy Chicago Protest   4 comments


It is easy to notice Occupy Protest when you work in financial district. Even if  you don’t agree with different signs or speeches you can have fun to take pictures in really unusual situation. My goal was to avoid politics and to try taking images in the timeless street photography style.

Political signs are important part of the story and I can not ignore them.

I  became interested in a way how kids are involved in these protests. I can not get over from the feeling that this is not the place for children to play games with often offensive and aggressive proclamations. But … I can be wrong.

Just one block from protests I’ve noticed woman with the sign that she is looking for a job. This was striking contrast from protest’s demands for entitlements.   If I had any power to hire her I would do it.

I did not take so many pictures as many other photographers that covered Occupy Protests. But considering my general low productivity this was great opportunity for shooting.

Project based candid photography   Leave a comment

Photographers often discuss about merits to have project or just do random walk during street shooting. I am a random walker. I constantly move from one place to another being alert to any opportunity for my shot.

Recently I had interesting experience in project based photography. My boss asked me to make some images for our company website. My professional responsibility has no relation to the photography or any fine art for that matter. My hobby is well known in our office and I’ve got my project.

Besides shooting in the office, I took some pictures about building.  This is the famous Chicago CBOT building that has a lot of action and interesting architecture.  To have project is unusual for me experience. I was constrained by the place and I had to explore every situation.  It is hard to say whether good shot is the product of the pure luck or having project really helps.

Why do Jews fight against their own interests?   Leave a comment

Once you cross gray area between candid street and documentary photography it is easy to get political. I could not restrain myself to avoid rhetorical question – “Why do Jews fight against their own interests?”
