Photographer Unknown (Portrait of Gustav Lindenthal, 1909)
The left hand clenched, flaunting a ring. At once he invites me to contemplate his morals (and all that comes with one’s assumption of another’s something). Is it fair? This portrait’s doing? My reciprocation? My clenched fist, bare knuckles or not.

Photographer Unknown (year unknown)I see (one could see) a slender woman’s gown trailing her oceanward march. Also, a spill of some sort. A man and the beast’s flesh he has slain — David’s Goliath-head. I learn that it’s a net; arguably capable of everything I initially saw.

I’ve never been able to associate those masks to any specific time period. They don’t belong to the past nor do they settle into the present, and for that reason I’m left with the unknown, which has got to be the future. I feel relief the moment I spot the one who has not managed to put it on in time for the shot.

James Nachtwey (Afghanistan, 1996)
There is something tragic upon learning that the legs belong to the idling, and not what I thought was at first children jumping. The shadows reveal that it may be a tank barrel, and I am now focused on the war-torn setting. And so, I have been betrayed by the shadows.

Camille Lepage ”Youth in South Sudan”(2013)This Captured moment I’ve seen, experienced, and I’m sure it occurs in every city of the world. Currently where I am, It’s called Happy Hour. Yet I can’t connect fully with the subjects in this photo for obvious reasons that ultimately instill discomfort in me (I am bruised). Why must it be so difficult to associate with a gesture belonging to another world? - is our smile not the same as the smile manipulated on a corpse?

Captured at a moment in which Gloria Richardson has managed to diminish the gun to a mere negated object. However, the Punctum, for me, is the soldier clutching onto the other soldier’s arm - a more apparent sign of defeat is not possible.

Clamor mute. Cesar Vallejo elegant in his poverty. Every photo that exists of Cesar Vallejo absolutely tears at my heart. Clamor mute is what I find myself uttering when I see this photo (any photo of him).
