there is a flea market in paris, porte de vanves on saturday and sunday morning (much more interesting than the big flea market in the north, porte de clignancourt), where i bought my frame to make real “the frame project by albi” of portraits in india.
i wanted to give more confidence to the people during i took portraits of them.
something to hold or better, something to hide themselve behind and also to find much more easy the contact to the person…
the effect was incredible: i didn’t got any refuse; everything was going very easy, we spoke together about my frame and specially in the school everybody wanted to be behind, or better: in my frame!
framed by albi: india today, real people deserve to be well framed !
it was a kind of staging (mise en scène) of portraits in a beautiful frame, giving them more value of there portraits and there being by using a very nice frame.
i will say thank you to the people of kerala who took part of my game and i had such a nice welcome to my project that i will try to make more portraits like this..
