The Student

The Student

Walking past the mall in Handen I decided to shoot some street portraits. I spotted this guy and figured him for a hip hoper. And I wasnt too far off. Music is one of his hobbies. He writes and produces Hip Hop. He has a Myspace site under the name Million Skills. Meet Mengie. From Handen. He is a student at KTH (The Royal Institute of Technology), in Södertälje. When he graduates he will be a "Högskoleingenjör" a type of engineer, the equivalent to a Bachelor's degree I think.

Your portraits are pretty fabulous. I loved the pigs, too.

Hey, a beautiful portrait. It's nice to have information about the person, too! Nice! Thanks for your comment about the roadster (?) in Astoria. So far nobody has made a definitive ID. We'll see what happens :) Greetings from Oregon.

And it's a good portrait. The light on his face works very well. Look carefully at his eyes. From this picture, at least, he looks like he has what we call a lazy eye - the right one drifts a bit to the outside.

Great portrait, not my kind of music. I wish him well for his studies.
