Robert Croma & Nicaragua

Gersh dernet! I wasn’t going to do a post because I have too much to do… but THEN…I saw these gorgeous portraits taken by Robert Croma in Nicaragua (Managua) circa 1990.

I’m still trying to figure out the art of taking strangers’ portraits. Whenever I asked people in Chicago, they looked at me like I had a psychotic agenda and waved me off. I did, but how did they know??? Any tips?

    Conviction. It has to make sense to you that you’re taking strangers’ photos. If you feel weird about it, then they’re going to feel weird about it. (I assume this translates from interviewing strangers about issues that may or may not apply to them.)
