The stand-outs for me in this set are the second and third BW ones, they are more powerful and have more to say to me than the portraits do.

Why 'second guessing'? It's the start of a serious social study

I totally agree.

Although QC's street portraits are coming on in leaps and bounds now the "caught in the headlights" look has largely gone and the subjects are starting to beam their personalities ( nice one QC ), I also think those two images are much more thought provoking.


1] has some mystery about it and evokes much thought about why he is clasping the railings in that manner

2] is a very powerful image and shows how society sadly still indoctrinates children that the industry of violence is still accepted by dressing them up in the uniform. The kid isn't happy and is obliviously going through the motions and has no idea of the sinister and serious veil of violence that surrounds this kind of thing.

This image makes me feel ill, but that's good as it's catalysed a powerful response.

The composition is almost perfect too as it cuts off the identity of the perpetrator and allows the viewer to focus upon the child making it even more powerful. A minor point but I would slice a few millimetres of the left to cut of the edge distraction.

Great stuff QC !!!!
