When I took this photo I knew right there and then that it was going to be a black and white photograph. The title is borrowed from the Coen brothers’ film, The Man Who Wasn’t There, about a gray man; if you haven’t seen it, I recommend you to watch it.
The picture was taken in San Miguel Escobar village; I wanted to show the nakedness and grayness of the concrete block wall and I was composing the photograph, the woman came out for a split second to take a look outside and went back inside just as quickly and disappear behind the curtain created by the shadows, but not before I took the shot.
There’s something I really like about this picture, but can’t put my finger on it, what about you, what do you think of it?
