"Chafik and Virginia" © Eugene Pinkowski
I asked friends,strangers,neighbors that I found interesting to do anything they wanted for my camera. Everything was shot at 89 Christopher Street, my apartment then, with this striped couch, brick walls.
Everything was shot on TMAX 1600 black + white film, pushed two stops.
Chafik is holding his cigarette,but his right hand is curled.Look at his fingers.Virginia asked if she could "bring a friend", and Chafik was her very young Egyptian lover. their body language and faces are amazingly expressive.
