POTD: Beyond the Veil #1

Beyond the Veil #1 Budapest, Hungary 2011

It’s amazing what little it takes sometimes to spawn a series of photographs on a particular theme. This shot was among some I took at a flea market in Budapest. The boy’s face being partly hidden by the box when he turned his head unexpectedly was an unintended part of the composition. When I was reviewing the photos at the end of the day, I noticed there was also a second photo with a face that had been partially concealed by accident. In the days after that, I caught myself noticing all sorts of scenes with partially hidden faces and a series was born. I eventually expanded it to include photos of partially obscured people in general (not just faces).]]>
