The Mayor by maxlake2 The Mayor by maxlake2
He's not really the mayor. It's just his nickname.

Pigtown, Baltimore.

I really like this entire series of portraits, all your subjects have such a strong personality...this has to be my favorite though. The expression coupled with the strong white on the left against the pitch black on the right - its like the photo is describing the man's moral state or a sense of being caught between two extremes. 

Thanks also for the :+fav: and comments :)

Yes.
Adriano Celentano once said to Compay Segundo who was the guest star of Celentano's tv show: you have the face of life.
This is a brilliant definition.
The Mayor has the face of life, too.
"The Faces of Life" would be a good name for a gallery.
Life has many faces, and Compay Segundo's face and Celentano's face and the Mayor's face are the faces of life.

That's interesting.  I've always liked Celetano as a singer, but I had forgotten that he was a talk show host, as well!  I can imagine him saying that to Segundo. :nod: That's an apt description of Segundo's face, as is yours of The Mayor (his first name is Clarence).
Thank you for your kind comments!

I love his expression. He seems to be so far away. Maybe he is in memories, or maybe He just looks away the window. But I prefere to tell myself he remembers his past, the best of his past..
Great Job Richard.

You're welcome Richard, but what else could I say? You're an extraordinary photographer and I'm so jealous at the way, you're able to have so many different feelings in one picture(:
Keep up the lovely work!
