  • Quite a photograph. We’re torn between wanting to know more, but also a feeling of not wanting to know more. Yet we can’t stop looking.

  • Thank you. I am George Michael Lane and live on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, USA. In 1971, I photographed with film these schoolboys in Sinop, Turkey. The photograph was taken with a Pentax Spotmatic camera and Super-Takumar 55 mm F1.8 lens. The recently digitized image was processed in Lightroom and Alien Skin Exposure.

  • Arresting capture, or perhaps “street portrait”. It’s very simple, yet we think each viewer will come away with their own story.
