Photographer of the day: Paul Henni

Category: Street.

Photograph: “Priestly Communications, Florence.” by Paul Henni (username “Paul Henni” on Flickr).

Originally shared on the Photofocus Flickr community right here.

Why I picked this image: 

A priest wearing his “cassock” robe is already an interesting subject for a street photo. But this image captured by Paul has more to it. The main object that dates this photo to a present day is the modern smartphone in the hands of the priest. Without it, the photo could have been taken half a century ago. The smartphone also could suggest that he may communicate with god via this modern medium.

But another very interesting detail in this photo is the shape of the light spot on the wall to the left of the priest. The light spot could resemble the silhouette of a person or angle if you allow your imagination to be playful.
