Oleg by UrielReyes Oleg by UrielReyes
Probably one of the portraits I'll use in my final project for my documental photography class. Is a series of portraits of the people who lives in the streets of my hometown and their particular circunstances. I'm trying to show the relevance of each people's situation, and why they're living that way, instead of looking only at the stats.

This is Oleg. He lives this way by choice, with no drug addiction or mental disorder.

Una de las fotografías que probablemente utilice en mi proyecto final de mi clase de fotografía documental. Es una serie de retratos de las personas que viven en la calle en mi ciudad, intentando poner enfasis en la persona y las diferentes circunstancias que lo llevan a vivir en este estado, y no únicamente en las estadísticas, como se trata el problema.

Este es Oleg. Eligió vivir de esta manera y no tiene adicciones o enfermedades mentales.

La verdad no sé mucho más de lo que agrego en la descripción. Hace poco me enteré de que en su juventud, solía jugar baloncesto con un hermano de mi madre. La vida los llevo por caminos diferentes.

Do you mind if I use them as a reference for pencil portrait practice? All credits will be given back if I ever decide to post it in public.

I love this picture! It has something in it that makes me at lest want to know more about Oleg, why did he choose to live this way? Is he happy? What is the story of his life? Very touching and attention drawing photograph, the other photo of Oleg made me cry [link]
I hope your photographs will be shown on many exhibitions not only in your city! Good luck and keep it up!
