    A great photographer is gone...

    Christian Poveda, whose work's often described as controversial, was a great reporter, documentalist and photograph. Some will say he lived a dangerous life... he was without doubt one the true witness of our times.



    Here's a couple of links:

    Notwithstanding the few responses, it's heartwarming to see that nearly a hundred people have seen this announcement.

    Christian was a real humanist, always readily enthusiastic to talk about the people he was shooting and their lives, and less about technical aspects despite his colossal knowledge -his "retro-hyperfocal" technic vouch for it.

    His work really deserves a closer look.


    (for those inclined to do so, simply click on the last link then on any thumbnail, and browse with the arrows... don't hesitate to check out the "Portraits" and "Reportages" tabs above, too).
