"Looking For Eyes" - Umberto Verdoliva

While I was researching some photographers for my project I came across a website that was dedicated to a few street photoghers. On this website there was a section specifically for projects but these photographers.

Looking For Eyes was the most interesting of these in my opinion and I felt inspired to do something like it for my project. However, I found that Hatfield isn’t a very busy place and getting dense crowds like these would be very difficult.

From what I gather from these images the photographer selected his subjects by standing in the crowd and photographing whoever caught his eye by looking at him or into the lense. I find this to be a very interesting why of photographing because the attention is instantly drawn to the subject whether they’re in the foreground or the background.

I wanted to do my project like this to try to avoid making it too similar to HONY- which is a blog that photographs people on the street to get their story.
