Doomed Trailer Park


Isaac Ramirez looks out his trailer's window Friday, July 27, 2007. Isaac is one of nine siblings, of which eight live in the trailer at the park that will be dismantled to make way for the North Park commercial development in Spanish Fork.

Awesome. That's a great frame Jero! Graphic and a nice quite moment there. I'd think about putting that in your portfolio, especially with that caption.

Hi Jero,

My daughter turned me on to your photo blog. Great shots. I like this one and the fire storm very much. I have a question about model releases. Do you get them from the people you photograph?

Yes, beacuse I have to ask them for their names, and I tell them it's for the newspaper. If they tell me their names, it's understood they agree with it. In this particular case, the kid's mother wouldn't allow me to photograph her family, but I told her I had already taken a picture of her son in the window. Then she (although reluctantly) told me his name.

This photograph epitomizes the human condition. The way the tattered gossamer screen is reflecting light as if it were light refracting off the surface of the water and the pathos in the expression of the boy are truly moving. This picture posseses rare beauty Jero.

By the way, and this is for "CARP" (Norm Carpenter): who's your daughter?
