Dmitri: behind the scenes One of the things I underestimate is people’s reaction to being seen. So often people talk about photography within the context of art history and forget that the reasons for the bastardization of the medium are the same elements that allow it to be a tool of subversion, revolution, and —dare I say— community-building. People see what they metaphor they have employed their bodies to communicating, and it is my job to have them realize I see them and the us in and through them. And in order to understand my work, the viewer has to ‘see’ the person in this work. There has always been study, well before the scholars. #ricohimaging #profotoglobal #alltheblacks #makeportraits #sanantonio #art #artist
