Word On The Street: Photos Of People With Words
Believe it or not, this photo, which appears to be a snapshot, was actually several weeks in the making: hide captionOakland, Calif., July 1977 Courtesy of Richard Nagler Photographer Richard Nagler writes in his new book, Word On The Street (Heyday, 2010), that in the late '70s, he was wandering the streets of Oakland, Calif., working on another project: "I came across an old building ... that had the single word TIME bolted to it in large letters. ... As I looked up, an elderly woman gazed out a window near TIME, but she quickly closed the curtain when, I thought, she saw me across the street with my camera. Nagler went back to that very spot several times over the next few weeks trying to capture the moment. After several tries, he got the image. You can analyze the photos ad nauseum, or just enjoy the coincidences — the decisive moments — that each image represents. hide captionBerkeley, Calif., April 1991 hide captionOakland, Calif., Nov. 1980 hide captionOakland, Calif., Sept. 1987
Photographer Turns his 91-Year Old Grandma into a Superhero to Cheer Her Up
A few years ago photographer Sacha Goldberger found his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika feeling lonely and depressed. So to cheer her up, and put a spark back into her life, he turned her into a superhero! He took a series of awesome photographs of her wearing costumes in unusual superhero type posses. "Grandma reluctantly agreed, but once they got rolling, she couldn't stop smiling." Frederika isn't only a superhero in these photos, but she was a real hero during World War II. Here's her story... Frederika was born in Budapest 20 years before World War II. These photos are great, and they definitely put a smile on my face.
