Black and white photo’s have a dramatic look, and a depth all of their own, which this photo displays perfectly. The focal point of his arm and hand draws you into the shot, and immediately has you concerned of what is troubling the man. Due to the expression, although half hidden has you wondering what is wrong, and what you could possibly do to help. The soft light hits all the main features to accentuate the mood, depth and emotion, of a clearly troubled individual.
It is a great shot that captures a human moment, one of which many of us can relate to; a shared moment that reads the same words no matter where you come from.
