Incredibly difficult to capture images such as this. First off, there's a certain amount of difficulty in creating gelatin silver prints, and often not appreciated by those living in the digital age where things can be whipped up so easily. Second, the image is classic in its composition with the man's face the focus, the circle of the mirror framing it all, and with the cabinet in the background much like a frame within the frame, but giving the inner image a bit of organic assymetry. And blah blah blah, I can go on there. But the thing I appreciate most is that the image really does look like it was taken during the depression era, but it's a recent image. The world has progressed, yet these people seem to have no need for any of it.

Not typically Pixdaus material; but I do appreciate this kind of stuff now and then. I like the eerie and surreal atmosphere here. Thanks Savannah

You are mssing something but it isn't within my ability to explain to you what that someething is. I'm not an art critic or an art historian. But if you'd really like to access and understand what is of value in Mr.Adams' photos I'd suggest you enter his name in your serach engine and spend some time looking at his work. Some of his images are very powerful, and some are disturbing. I can tell you that his work is in the permanent collections at the Art Institute of Chicago,. The Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum, both in New York City, the Canadian National Gallery in Ottawa, as well as several major European collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship this year, 2010.

Curious photo....previous comment compliments Adam's as a master, yet most would consider a reflection of only part of the photographers arm and camera to be a poor shot. Also, what is up with the freaky looking guy on the right side?? What am I missing here?

This is a gelatin silver print from the collection of Shelby lee Adams' work in the Smithsonian Museum of American Art. Mr. Adams is an internationally recognized master in the genre of black and white portraiture whose works are considered contemporary classics in the traditon of Dorothea lange, Russell lee, Walker Evans and Richard Avedon.
