Artist's Description

How a slight change of focus can completely invert the feeling of an image!…

Having a drink in a Kuala Lumpur street by night.. It was an happy moment. I put the camera to my eye to take a picture of a good friend and, my attention was suddenly attracted by the person behind him… I changed the focus. Here it is… From the happy picture, it becomes as sad one, showing loneliness… Makes me feel how near we are from each others, in our different bubbles… Some happy, some sad… so close and so far… but we don’t see… unless we change the focus…..

Leica M8 – Summicron 35mm
