In Between trains - Nov 2011 by pearwood the artist has used every element of the image - from the available light to the exposure to the grain of the film - to create a scene both timeless and haunting. This image stands as testament that a photograph does not have to be polished and buffed to tell a resonant story.

If I had to choose just one photograph by which my photographic legacy would be judged, I think it would be this one.

Yeah, I'd agree with your "legacy" comment.

Funny... thinking about legacy, I'm wondering what piece of mine that I would want to be remembered by....

pearwood's avatar
I'm not sure I would answer the question the same way not, but neither am I sure I would not.

So, I'm curious... Of the pieces of mine which I've done over time, is there one that you feel like impacted you most deeply... or has that perhaps changed over time and circumstances?

pearwood's avatar

Let me think about that.

Nice shot, I like the faded effect. Her expression seems to reflect the title, both can be interpreted with different attitudes.

If my photography legacy were to be judged on the basis of one image only, I would want it to be this one.

I am not at all surprised that you feel that way. It is a truly magnificent photograph and one so brilliantly emotive it could grace magazine covers and galleries alike. Great, great work - where the term is used in its most genuine form.
