SEEN IN THE LOOP


The portrait of George Floyd on the wall is well known by now. I find it, hard, though, to interpret the man's hand gesture. I asked his permission to photograph him. It wasn't clear whether he was trying to strike a dramatic pose for me, if he wanted to squeeze something or whether he was a little anxious. His right hand is pulling the bottom of his tee shirt while his eyes and mouth may express uncertainty. You can read as much as you want into a photograph.

Good shot. I agree with you about it not being clear what he is thinking...

Today's uncertainty perfectly captured.

George Floyd will be on many murals all over the world.
Maybe the man wasn't yet done with his pose :)

He does look a bit skeptical.
