Was this street shot been taken in Philadephia as well? Again, I love it. Have you ever though joining in Magnum agency?
Craig Martin: Thanks Cloe, and yes, this was in West Philadelphia (affectionately known as "Philly"). As for Magnum Agency, you are waaaaay too kind. For those curious, it is worth checking out its site: http://agency.magnumphotos.com/about/about

Actually looking at pictures on Magnum website is one of my favourite hobby.....and I really do think some of your photographs deserve a place on it. Anyway I was wondering if you ask people if they re ok to be shot in the parc?
Craig Martin: Thank you very much Cloe. As for the asking of people, some yes, some no. It all depends. Most of those that you see in which the subject is actually looking at the camera, I have asked if I can take their picture. Cheers.
Un escenario excelente y una pequeña historia...
¿Porque será que a los fotografos nos gusta tanto la decadencia?
Craig Martin: Gracias! And as for the question, it is a good one. I am not sure I know the answer, yet we do seem instinctively drawn to depict people and areas that are impovrished and in decline.
