Andrew Miksys’ series Bingo has an almost dark and eerie feel to it, while being very intriguing (like the rest of his body of work, for that matter).

“Ultimately, I think it’s more respectful to take pictures that show “reality” the way it is with all its flaws and imperfections. However, I can’t say that everyone succeeds at this. (…) Photographers are in a powerful and even privileged position. I think it’s a good idea to keep this and mind and not put yourself above the people you photograph. I really like Whitman’s democratic view of the world that the poet/photographer and his or her subjects are on the same level. “Who am I that I should call you more obscene than myself.” Good stuff.”
