my younger brother, Q, is quite an odd little fellow.

while we were staying at the hotel waiting for our apartment to be renovated, i wanted to capture him in his "natural habitat", meaning, taking pictures that describe his personality, character, and basically what he does 23 out of 24 hours in a normal day.

the light coming through our room window from battery park sparked my eye. snap here, snap there. move a little to the left, no the other left. and done.

i often think that silhouettes capture more than one's physical appearance. shadows, contrast, darkness all provide the mood of the photographer, and, quite frankly, the mood of the subject as well. 

after i took a few photographs, i tell him i'm finished. in an instant, he makes his way back to the only desk in the room, where his 2007 macbook pro sits; minecraft running. typical. so i took another shot.
