Week 06/52 “Fringe” – Selection

A vertical selection this week. I could not go pass this shot from last night. I enjoy the non interaction of the people around the squatting cone head lady. She has seemingly blended in and has been successful hiding from her friends.  Perhaps not so peripheral with the binge drinking culture Australia has but I picked it for the humour and its simultaneous strangeness.

B Sides below are a mix of images captured from the fringe festival in Perth as well as people that live in the fringes of society ie, the homeless (a street photography cliche I know)

Fringe World

The word Fringe of course. Using the available light to illuminate the woman.

The Big Issue

Particularly like the juxtaposition of the man selling the big issue, which I took as the “fringe” subject, against the Rio Tinto signage on the building and the camera surveillance sign on the wall.

Down and Out

Came across this man on my way to get some groceries. I wish the government did more. For the life of me I do not understand why cities in Australia do not have public sanitary sort of facilities beyond the toilet.

Vagabonds

A man and his long time companion. The bag almost looks like it has obtained some human qualities over the years.

The Mannequins

Something about mannequins that are just freaky.

Gold Digger

Lady luck was on my side here.

Distance Gaze

I asked this man for his portrait and to my surprise he agreed. His distance gaze, and soft eyes to me shows vulnerability.  He did not talk much, his mind was somewhere else.
