going on: a man in the bottom-left corner hunched over, perhaps drunk and hung over from partying earlier, a man with a hat in the center of the frame (perhaps also passed out hugging the pole and hand. In the top-right of the frame, you see the words cream but with the window pane intersecting it, it looks like it says dream (you can interpret this however you would like). I love how all of their gazes go in opposite ways which makes the photograph much more dynamic: All of these men looking in different directions (as well as the people in the background) adds a 3d effect to the image Image #32: romania. Even if it has been, you havent photographed it before. In this image, you see a boy in the far left of the frame, and a ball that has been kicked over Im not quite sure what the symbolic reference of this image is (or what Koudelka is trying to say). It does make sense in terms of the sequence of the book as you see the next image is of a shadow of a bridge.

For me, I have started to realize that in photography books it isnt just the single images which make the book. This starting image is one of my favorite images from Koudelka him looking over the empty streets of Prague just as the Russians are invading. Koudelka shot this from a pretty low angle as well, which makes the perspective of the child more personal. I extracted the most (personally) interesting bits below:. It is a photograph that makes me happy and appreciative of the small things in life (the joy of relaxing in nature). I hope to aspire to one day create a body of work similarities of Candys Dog and Lennie Small that has the same amount of emotion and soul as Exiles. At first glance, it looks like all these men are caged in some sort of prison or cell. Reject the basic assumptions of civilization, especially the importance of material possessions.
