I love the contrast from this picture, the innocent little girl with her eyes covered by the tall, dark man, In a way it seems that he is protecting her, he is giving her time to live her childhood without seeing the smoke and all the bad things that surround her. But in the same time, the composition of the picture makes you feel that something wrong is happening there. Smoke, darkness and a man without figure keeping the little girl from running away.
In 2011, Alex Stoddard became an well known teenage photographers with his series of self portraits that amazed the world because of their uniqueness and the power in which he is able to express his feelings and personality through one static picture. As u can see below, the portraits are expressive, pushing creative boundaries, amazing in every way and they were a very good start for an successful career.
