Bro, that's dark and absolutely brilliant, like you stumbled upon a crime scene!! Big V
this one epitomises the saying "a picture is more than a thousand words" .
Great pic !!
Phenomenal story to this one. Ruth's comment was haunting. Especially the last two words and how it tied in the with the rest... he shivers
this one image speaks for the entire gallery. it's the one i always open and sit staring at for ages, memories and scenarios flashing through my mind. there's such an incredible tension about it... the violence may be in the past, but the effects linger on.
i see a child sitting there, knuckles white from gripping the edge of the chair so tight, trembling in fear, silent tears rolling slowly down her face as the daily abusive script echoes off the walls and resounds through her ever emptying soul. she somehow finds the strength to push her feet into the floor, to shakily stand up and bravely run away... she spends the rest of her life running though, as she can never really escape. the anger and destruction are embedded so deep that even in silence, solitude and comparative safety, she can't escape the torment. the stillness haunts her. it takes her back into a dark, lonely world where she is nothing more than a punchbag, a body to be violated, a face to be screamed at. she continually debates whether the violence and abuse were actually easier to tolerate than the emptiness and pain that gnaw at her from the realisation of what has been lost...but this photo reminds her never ever to go back. she votes...
is that a footprint on the wall? someone been giving it a kicking
still one of my all time favorites.. I need to start framing photos..
This probably has more emotion in it than most images I see anywhere.. and although your pics are fraught with them.. this one resounds.. I think of that one song .. the one with just music until you hear a man so out of control saying "DON'T YOU FUCKING LOOK AT ME"
I can hear that from this wall ...
muy buena galeria y muy buen tema, esta en especial es la que más me gusta y la q más me trasmite ese abandono. me gusta muchisimo su luz.
stating more than the obvious with heady emotive charge.that's why I crave the Niall touch.brilliant.powerful angst by any measure.GMV because everyone should have another look at it.
.This photograph expresses a remarkable ability to prolong inspiration beyond a particular moment ...unexpressed wishes, dictated by the subconscious.
Love this, it's like that we can see that something happened here. Maybe a crime, a face on the wall, a big dispute, something of what happened is still there and waiting for being discovered. Great.
I like this view of the punched in wall better. With the chair toward the outside of the frame.. the focus is on the wall - a sense of anger or frustration.
