Images from the Photographic Life of Raymond Thompson.
I think the kids were probably wondering why all these white people were taking pictures of them, meself.I am assuming you are white of course. Does that make me a racist?I don't think anyone in that shot is being racist.
To Queenie,It is my job to photograph the people who live in the community where I work.I saw this lady who does not know these children stop what she was doing to take their photograph and walk away.I do not think that people normally photograph other people's children without a reason.Maybe the fact that I'm African-American makes me more sensitive to images like this. My first reaction to this picture is one of distrust of the woman's intentions.
