PHOTO OF THE WEEK: Nov. 30-Dec. 7, 2007
Tattoo, Juarez – 2007
Flying tattoo on the window. Thatâ€™s what I was after. Beautiful.
What I got was the Universal Salute?
He didnâ€™t like me? No, I donâ€™t get that. I do struggle with why I shoot on the streets. What right do I have, who appointed me? Thereâ€™s some kind of thing I got into my head about documenting and witnessing and leaving the artifact that has driven me for a long time. So I do.
I like the fact that the tattoo-ero sends something back. Heâ€™s got a right. We all do what weâ€™ve got do.
So, I get my tattoo in Juarez.
Itâ€™s not always peace and love out there.
So be it. â€˜Ta bien.
