Takes his Job Seriously

Uploaded: February 14, 2015 | Entered: February 14, 2015 16:18:23


This was from 2012. I had been photographing a Red Cross event and was on my way home by train. This was the Women's rest room at what is now called Jefferson Station in Philadelphia. The mother of these boys was in a stall and the older brother was charged with caring for his little brother. I had Mom's permission to photograph her children.

He does look so very serious, and a little sad as well, as though the world is heavy upon him. Your close up pov here connects us in a strong and emotional way. #1607504
