Your favorite 2011 picture #8 : Jerome Arfouche

Let’s go back to the US East coast today and have a look at this Boston shot taken by Jerome Arfouche from Canada in May.

Leica M7 + 35mm Summicron ASPH + Fuji Neopan 1600

Here is what Jerome wrote about it :

“I started shooting a few years ago, on my way downtown every day, but I rarely got the chance to travel, something I very much enjoy. After a while I felt my town was getting a bit smaller, luckily I was able to escape for a couple of weeks this spring and travel in the US, visiting friends along the way.
That was my last day in Boston before I continued my journey to the west coast of the US. My friend and host was busy that day so I had the day to myself, and I was looking for a place to eat after the long morning walk. As I went in, I sat by the window, almost without thinking, by reflex. It was a bit late for lunch and outside, people were making their way back to work. I took a few other shots but I like this one best because I felt it really shows the feeling I got from the city, that busy, cold spring week.

My photographic “style” draws from the documentary genre and cinematography, but with a strong emphasis on aesthetics. I like to show the mystery of the city and to imagine what kinds of stories could be going on in those small quick situations we capture.”
