From “Tales of a City” by SEIGAR
Image Description: [A man and woman with graying hair stand in front of Van Gogh’s painting “Sunflowers”, large yellow flowers with green leaves in a yellow vase, placed on a yellow table are visible. We can only see the backs of the couple, the man wears a grey sweater and blue jeans. He has short hair. The woman has shoulder length hair and wears a black velvet coat and blue jeans, the top of her black boot is visible. The woman has only one leg. They stand in front of a green rope, with the woman’s hand resting on the man’s bottom as he considers the painting.]
This photo belongs to “Tales of a City”, an ongoing series taken in London. I have always been connected to this city emotionally and professionally. It’s probably the place that inspires me most in photography. This tale, which was captured in the National Gallery, we find this lovely couple interested in arts. They stare at the Van Goh’s Sunflowers appreciating its beauty and warm colors, but also enjoying the physical contact. It’s a candid moment. As an anecdote of its technical aspects, I must confess its settings weren’t the best with respect to the aperture, but I didn’t have time to change it. Street photographers will understand and forgive me; we sometimes sacrifice the settings and just get the instant forever. Seconds later, she would take the crutches she had just put on the floor. Anyway, the essential here isn’t that. It’s love and arts together. I hope you enjoy my tale of a city.
