I tihnk this is a mere expression of isolation (not loneliness). By isolation I mean that every individual in the world is unique, there is no another man or woman sharing the very same characteristics. Such an uniqueness is scary. Because we do know that I-sharing is immposible, no single individual knows what we really think, feel, or live.

The photograph above is clearly presenting the singleness of us. The model seems so weak, isolated, and "little" that we feel how we are in our world. A clever use of dark areas in the photograph is the one of the most powerful characteristics of the presented work. The same is als true for the light areas.

As a summary, it is great, inspiring work. Congratulations.

Soon as i looked upon this picture i was lost for words.
The minimal colours the artist/photographer has used has created a piece with no story, which gives it a unique special touch.
I also love how it's as if the stranger is in the spotlight, and he is using only little of the space yet he is immediately the subject.
The dim lighting hitting the dust makes the whole piece have a extraordinary edge and touch.
Many different interpretations can come about when viewing, which is why it is definitely one of my favourite pictures.

Originality at it's best.

A very impressive and moving piece.

I gave you five stars across the board and there's a reason for that. Technically, everything is executed perfectly throughout the image, from the direction the man is facing, to the composition with the lighting, to the the way your eye is dragged directly on the subject.

I have recently been thinking about existance and the meaning of life and this image brought out those thoughts almost immediately.

It's interesting how the subject is bowing his head almost as if accepting the fate that he must meet. The bleak environment that surrounds him gives a strong feeling of helplessness and dispair. It's nice to be able to relate to an image in such a way and I definitely enjoyed it.

Anyway, this is definitely a well done piece. It's inspiring <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />.

A very nice comment but not really a critique, is it?

That's me critically analyzing it :P (with a personal twist, haha).

I can't find anything about the piece that needs looking into.

Amazing composure. Love the contrast, the warm but dull tones, the negative space, the contrast. Very well done.
