The Price of Admission: Dan Savage on the Myth of “The One” and the Unsettling Secret of Lasting Love

August 29, 2014 "Meeting the One" I took this photograph some nights ago. It was drizzling while I was taking a walk, and like the sky, I was trying to release my emotions of helplessness. In the news Ferguson was burning. It was then I bumped into who I have to describe as "The One." There planted on top of some garbage bins was a portrait of Marilyn Monroe. She seem to reflect my mood. It was difficult to avoid the emotion that appeared to be stuck in her eyes. Her presence however heralded the changing face of Bedstuy. Which of my new neighbours had abandoned her. I couldn't just pass her. The name under her portrait kept me rooted to her. It was like looking into a mirror. Richard Avedon is really why I started taking portraits the way I do. His ability to make the one picture speak like a photo story is the reason he is "The One," well for me anyway. To someone, keeping his work was no longer of value. Pretty soon someone out there will no longer see my work as one that has value. I stood for hours looking into the eyes that refused to look back. It was no different from the new eyes that now walk around my Bedstuy neighbourhood. And I left her helpless. #oggl_ig #blackportraiture #bedstuyportrait #brooklynportrait #streetportrait #streetphotography #makeportrait #makeportraits #igers #instamood #webstagram #documentary #sonyr100
