American Portraits: No. 4 by Nullermanden American Portraits: No. 4 by Nullermanden
March 24th, 2007
Boston, Massachusetts

'Benson'


First time in Boston, accompanied by ~Girolamo and a friend named Rocky, and not more than 5 minutes after arriving, we saw this gentleman walk right past us - and after exchanging a couple of looks, I turned 180 degrees and followed him. I caught up with him and introduced myself, and he told me, I could call him Benson. He agreed to a shot, and after a couple of minutes of talking and finding the right spot to shoot the portrait (his decision, not mine), I ended up with this. He was posing up against a small monument, and if you look closely at the lines in the background, you'll notice that they are all tilted. The man tilted his head strongly to the side when posing, so I had to tilt my camera with it!

First off, I want to say I LOVE what you are doing, this whole project requires time and dedication and I admire you for that, this project is true art in my eyes and you must be truly devoted to what you do, plus it is just plain awesome. I actually dreamed of doing something similar to this for years, to travel everywhere and meet new, random people. I think that would be amazing.
Anyways, now about the actual portrait itself. I love the expression, the lighting, and the whole vintage feel it has to it. Great shot, it is very lovely.:heart:
