March 2015: La Fuente’s kitchen smells of fajitas, menudo and plenty of other Mexican staples. But the men of the kitchen are willing to make a dish that might not be on the menu – like a potato taco. People at work tend to pose when they’re in front of a lens, but I think these two were happy to just be photographed.
Shot on the N2020 film camera with two very different exposures. The kitchen itself is a series of blues, grays and bright white florescent lights, but the opening into the dining room is flush with natural lighting coming in from the windows. Can’t blame the light meter for the difference in the two images, which are only a few feet apart.
