Despair 1of5

I call this series despair. It is about people and the despair in their lives. A neglected child in the dysfunctional family, he beaten girl, a defeated man and a junkie all caught up in despair and have forgotten how to enjoy life. Finally a homeless man with not a care in the world.

Too true a reality in lots of families all over the planet. Sad shit we naked apes are doing to each other.

You hit home with this one mate.
Reminds me of my fucked up childhood :/
But anyway, amazing photograph, captures the scene perfectly.
Job well done.

This reminds me of when my family argues. You are really good with photos! She has the exact face of mine when I hear my parents argue over money...
This is a very strong image. The b&w adds to the message. Well done!

I was wondering if you minded if I painted this?I would (of course)have a link back to your work and everything.The emotion in the girl's face just...gets to me.I guess I feel like I can relate, not to the parents fighting but the pain you can see in the little girl.Beautiful work and thanks!

Amazing picture... :heart:

I think people who had these types of childhoods are the ones who grow the strongest because they don't ever want to replay the memories...

Very, very powerful picture~
Very powerful. Somewhat triggering too, and I kinda felt really bad for a moment there. So, obviously, it's a pretty good piece.

She's so cute, and I'm sad............I hate this feeling, we all do because deep down it's within us all of the time.
