In the Cockpit

Tonight I may well have looked through every image that I’ve shot over the last two years. Three years and before were untouched. I’m gathering some potential portfolio work, and admittedly always enjoy a bit of a visual blast through the past.

And this turned up. Very much inline with current my interests given my more recent specialization in portraiture. It’s a man in his 9-5 environment, on board the forklift in one of his many functions in the warehouse.

But is it him? What in the image, beyond his form, is him? There are no other personal touches, no possessions which hint at who he is beyond what he’s wearing. So the question may become, who else could stand in for him and create essentially the same image? Anybody? My portraiture night-class has me thinking much more about this stuff as of late.

No forklifts on my horizon.
