Somewhere and nowhere

by Laura Bergerol

Every Friday, Darren invites someone to become ‘Guest Editor’ for the day to choose and discuss three or four images that have not been previously published on the website.  Today’s Guest Editor is Laura Bergerol, a professional photographer from New Orleans, Louisiana who specialises in portraiture.  She tries to capture the world around her with all of its wonder, joy and laughter.  You can see Laura’s work on her website.  Laura is also the co-founder of Images Without Borders which is a photo charity that sells prints to help Doctors Without Borders carry on their mission around the globe.  Laura asked Darren to let her see some of his people photographs.

The young marine, who looks like he might be texting someone, bears the remoteness that is captured within all of today’s photographs; a sense of being somewhere and nowhere at one time, and an air that allows for a certain invisibility.  I got the sense that Darren captured these people unbeknownst to them, and as he did so he captured their mood as well.
