Thumb up! Bucharest, Romania, 2016. The whole story.
Original, signed, limited edition (30 pieces) with certificate of authenticity. Printed on high quality Hahnemühle photographic paper.
Shot in the very same underground stairs where Run! was taken, Thumb up! relates to one of the aspects of street photography that I really enjoy: the contact between the photographer, and his subject. And the best contact is a positive reaction to the photography, with this man raising his thumb high to express his support. Ain’t it cool?
Besides, I like this photo for its graphical aspect, with the chrome bar cutting the photo in two almost identical pieces at 45 degrees, with the reflection of the people in the marble. It would have been a cool shot. but with this finger up, it’s for me a great shot!
