Want a new perspective for your portraits or street shots? Have a little inspiration courtesy of Richard Kalvar of Magnum Photos!
We’re all connected and we’re all disconnected. These are powerful words and food for thought from photographer Richard Kalvar. Nothing is posed in his photos, despite how whimsical and absurd some of his images might seem. Here is what he has to say about his photos and this video.
I capture reality, never pose it. But once captured, is it still reality? Ive always tried to play with the false impression of reality, with the ambiguity of appearances. Things are what they seem to be, or maybe something else.
Treading the fine line of being funny and dark at the same time, Kavlar captures and reveals a unique brand of humanity. What do you guys think of his photos? Think you can do a similar job? Let us know!

For this article, I was inspired by his most famous photo, a woman climbing a staircase, taken in 1930, which is reminiscent of the famous Odessa stair of the film "Battleship Potemkin" by Sergei Eisenstein.
