This is a bit like a painting too with all those textures.
After looking at this for a while the man begins to represent many things. It makes this seem like a peeping hole to a labyrinth. I'm not able to describe it better...

soo powerful! really hits me hard. makes me want to go and give money to everyone of the poor people i see on the street.

the technical aspects of the image are great too--- i love how you framed the image using your environment. awesome work with that. and the color is amazing too. the wall matches the man matches the floor-- almost symbolizing that he is nothing. but then the clothes make him stand out-- symbolizing that he might just be important in this world.

great job here!! :+fav:

This is a pretty powerful image. You captured it well and I like how you chose to shoot it through the window. The blue material under him and the dull blue of his pants really pop him out from the muted tones and emphasize what's trying to be said. It is quite sad, but unfortunately, all too real. Nice work.

Great shot. The framing speaks for itself. And the sad reality is this could be found just about anywhere in the world.

A powerful image. Framing the subject really brings the viewer's attention to his plight and the similitary of the skin color and color of the cracked, rough wall is almost poetic. Very well done.

sad but true.. ya.. :tears: things aren't that bad in singapore, although there are also people who suffers here, mostly very old people. they are homeless and sleeps anywhere.. sigh..

apart from the topic.. i think you've did a good job with photography.

yeah your art definitely opens up the problems of your country in ways that anybody can understand

here in america, i would never have pictured anything like rubble and a homeless person living there.
this photography is an open window that shows the poverty in this world, wow
