mknobil says: Ooooof That hurts. The B&W makes these faces easier ... and perhaps more productive to contemplate. The color is like being face to face, where I find myself averting my eyes in self protection. Such weakness ... -- 10:53PM, March 25, 2006.

NYCArthur says: hard to tell he's the same guy as in the other photo. perfect photo of him. real, hard.. actual. -- 11:59AM, March 30, 2006.
original_ann says: Powerful portrait - - from the handknit cap to the blanket(?) over one shoulder... he continues to smile. What I find MOST intriguing is the pristine condition of the white skin under his eyes... If I stare long enough at that and his eyes, all I begin to see in this picture is the man behind the mask. That tiny bit of white alone lets me see the real man. That whiteness is almost like a bookmark to reminds us that beneath this sun-and-misfortune ravaged mask lies a good man no different that you or I. It's humbling actually. Great, great job - great choice to go with color here too. You are inspiring! -- 04:18PM, March 30, 2006.

carf says: Believe me, those people have a long history, many of them starting out as street kids and life just went on, and on, and on..... I love your street portraits and the people in them. Great work all the way..... Gregory - The Hummingbird Project (Projeto Beija-Flor) -- 02:08PM, April 07, 2006.

jake_true_love_af says: His eyes are really beautiful, and i love your work stoneth!!! -- 04:05AM, June 20, 2006.
fetching says: tomas, i can see now what you mean by color being a bit of a distraction with all the sores and marks on his face. it's almost painful to look at. hmmm, but maybe that's how it should be? -- 03:41PM, July 08, 2006.

scoTToneEleven says: amazing. im not putting down your B&W work, because its amazing...but, seeing these people in color really brings them to life on the screen. their faces are so filled with character and the color just enhances it, the dirt and wrinkles and their emotion. for me, color is always more powerful. in any case, incredible work..all of it! -- 07:05PM, December 19, 2006.
The Way You Look at Me says: I was just about to make the same comment as the person above (scoTToneEleven). Your color shots are so raw & gripping. They are prime examples of what a good portrait should look like. -- 04:03PM, March 10, 2007.
