Dwarka, India, 2012

Dwarka India 2012 by Maciej Dakowicz

Every week I go through the profiles of Street Photographers and look at their images fast. If an image captivates me it does so in the first split second I set my eyes upon it. This image of Maciej Dakowicz called “Dwarka, India, 2012” grabbed my attention in the smallest fracture of time. I knew when I first set eyes on it that this was the image I was going to choose for this week’s Street Photo of the Week. But I continued my search, looked at more of his photos and other but I found myself coming back to this one. So, here it is Readers. A photographic masterpiece in my opinion. Everything works in this shot. Rule of thirds on the column, colours are just amazing together, the position of the man jumping over the gap, the photo taken at the decisive moment, the line coming down over the man, shaping a triangle with the top of the wall and that red cloth that is just perfect in this image. I don’t want to go overboard in my analysis, sometimes I get carried away, but I really think this is exceptional work, well worth the feature!

Thank you Maciej Dakowicz!
