Not really Back, but had a thought I felt was worth working out by writing it all down...

When I started photographing people who were beyond my circle of friends, I sought out people with an interesting look, people with character in their appearances. People who were attractive, but in a way that was, hopefully, not as cookie-cutter as I'd see in magazines.

And almost all those people, in the beginning, were white. Race wasn't something I thought about, when looking for subjects.

It was years before I realized this was typical of internet portraiture, at the time, and that it was something I needed to correct.

I've spent the last few years being far more active in photographing people from all kinds of backgrounds, though I could do more. It's difficult, breaking out of old patterns, but it's always worthwhile.

Different races, different body types, different genders. Even if it's unconscious, it's creatively limiting, and it also contributes to a particular systemic bigotry.

If you look back at your work, and all your subjects look the same...might be time to broaden your horizons.

One of these shops that sells third rate items at a price so low you'd expect their raw material to cost more.

Pentax ME Super and SMC Pentax 35mm f/2.8, Kodak Pro Image 100 developed with the Rollei C41 kit and digitalized using kit zoom and extension tubes.

Thank you everyone for your visits, faves and comments, they are always appreciated :)
