A Special Day With David Lykes Keenan - Fair Witness

 “I am a Fair Witness, sir. Not a participant.” (From the Robert Heinlein novel Stranger in a Strange Land)

When I first watched David's pictures, I could not help to think about Robert Frank and "The Americans". More than 50 years have passed since that groundbreaking book was published and I have asked myself many times - where can I find street photography with such unique quality in the 21st Century?

David Lykes Keenan is definitely on to something - I am very impressed by his work. It is a Special Day and a lot of fine street photography to look forward to. The pictures are selected from David's Photo Book project  "Fair Witness" and the text appearing next to the photos is from his essay.
