This is a photo of Ali, the nephew of a long-time friend Feisal. Ali went to art school so we have much in common. This was taken at the Pompidou Center in Malaga Spain from inside the glass door entrance so the lettering is reversed. There’s something about this photo I really like – the colors, the diagonal, the palm trees, the family on the right, and the overall lightness from the Mediterranean nearby as well as Ali’s pleasant expression and casual cigarette.
Malaga has multiple contemporary art venues in addition to the Picasso Museum and other more historic cultural showcases. Here’s a painting from the Contemporary Art Center (CAC).
