FACES OF THE HOMOSAPIENS by Thierry Loa
Using a 500MM telephoto lens and shooting as far as 12FT from the subjects, Thierry got the idea for the project while watching wildlifephotography. Just like how it is challenging in wildlife photography to approach the animals in a non-intrusive manner for fear of affecting their behavior, Thierry works to capture and magnify honest if not evocative moments on the human faces of everyday people, in their most natural states, in public spaces.
