Kicking & Punching

Kicking & Punching

This is Alex. I spotted him in Västerhaninge on Friday. It was a very gloomy day, so he stood out a bit with his green beanie, red hair and his colorful shoestrings. Alex is a 9th grader. He lives in Krigslida and come the fall he will be an electrician student at the secondary school Fredrika Bremer-gymnasiet in Handen. His hobbies include playing the guitar (just like the girls from Sarcastic Undertone), and practising Martial Arts. For Alex that means Taekwando, just like Jonny.

So cool! Ace portrait, and now I'm enjoying reading about the 100 strangers project... I'd love to be able to take photos of strangers. Maybe this should serve as inspiration. Thanks!

Love the fluoro shoelaces. So retro. So 1980s.

Ja den "pricken" sticker verkligen ut, ha, ha. Gillar dina porträtt skarpt. Hur i hela friden får du dem att ställa upp så där................

Playing music and being in a band seems to be the Haninge thing to do!

Jag antog en utmaning för ett par år sedan då jag gjorde 100 Strangers Project på flickr. Ett utmärkt sätt att lära sig att ta kontakt med folk, och att få dom att öppna upp. Alla jag fotar får mitt kort med kontaktinfo och webbsidor. Jag förklarar också var bilderna hamnar och i vilket sammanhang. Jag brukar fråga ifall dom har ett par minuter och så ställer jag några frågor så att jag kan skriva några rader om personen i fråga. Givetvis tackar några nej,men de flesta ställer upp, vilket gör att jag nu inte kan sluta!

What a wonderful character you've captured in this. Funny, today I am wearing one pink sock and one green...exactly the same shades as your subject's shoelaces.

He doesn't look the type for martial arts, but I don't know how the type may be. Another good portrait in image and words.

Cool guy. He looks like that Scooby Doo buddy.

Nice portrait. He's a smart fellow to become an electrician.
