On a trip to 3centcopy Place I met the Raul, self-proclaimed Master Commander of home-country Peru and Genius Actor. You can often see him in Dundas Square, dancing and challenging strangers to play him in chess; soap box style busking. He was putting together copies of his handwriting (mostly in spanish) pictures of his homeland, his first and 2nd wife and a petition with signatures of people from all over South America. I'm not sure what the petition was for because I am mono-lingual. I was really intrigued by him and when I asked to take his picture he was more responsive than I was expecting. Someone please help me translate what he's writing about.

more long exposures. used the tripod this time. I tried a flashlight on the first two shots here. In the last one Deitra is using the flash.
would it be ridiculous if I came up with some pretentious statement about involving the the subject with the creation of the image, tearing down the typical form of the passive subject?
... probably. let's forget that then, i'll save that for art school.
