I was at a newsstand at the JFK in NYC and looking at the mags. I’ve always been fascinated by covers and fashion or photo magazines. So a question coming many times from you guys is:
“what makes the perfect cover?”
Looking at this old issue of the TIME magazine I can tell you straight: “Feelings”.
Because when a very simple shot with very easy light and shadow contrast can attract your attention like this cover does, there’s nothing magic, it’s just her beauty and her soul that is driving this picture like magic.
Photography sometimes has nothing to do with the tech perfection but it’s just a matter of feelings.
