The R&B Fan

The R&B Fan

This is Taglou. I spotted him on the sidewalk along Lillsjövägen in Jordbro a few days ago. He was on hos way to work at Dagab, the big logistics company, but had time to pose for a few portraits. He lives at Hässelby in Stockholm, so he has to commute with the train every day. I figured Taglou for someone who loved hip-hop and he told he was. But he also listens to reggae and R&B . The Jordbro industrial area is filled to capacity and there are a few hundred companies here. You will find both smaller work places with only a few employees to the large corporations like Dagab and Coca-Cola.

What a fine looking young man!

From Spånga to Jordbro, that's quite a bit of commuting. Well, he won't have to change trains at least. Having a job is a good thing, especially for a youngster these days.

I whole heartedly agree with the others. A handsome young man with a sincere smile. Good job. More of us should take on this project. You have met some interesting and wonderful people.

I think you all should shoot more street portraits. Because you never know who you might end up talking to. I will give you an example. One of my bikes broke down yesterday. As I couldn't fix it so I parked it at a bus stop. The next bus was two hours away so I started the long walk home. A few kilometres later I made a pit stop to get some water at Ann-Charlotte's place ( a woman I have met twice and photographed). Insted of the water I was served a sandwich, coffee and cake in her garden, she was with a friend and we had a pleasant conversation. And to top this Ann-Charlotte offered to drive me and the bike home. Which she did.

Your portraits are stunning. You have a way of making your subjects relax. This is superb. What a nice guy this is.
