My pleasure. Rarely do we see such authentic and emotional portraits nowadays. It reminds me of the pictures in the old issues of the National Geographic...

Awesome facial expression. Faces like these tell thousand stories don't they?

Yes they really do. Unfortunately no one can tell, but this guy was blind in the eye that is closed. I wish I had caught that in this photograph. :)

Beg to differ. IMHO that eye would have attracted more people to the image by way of a morbid affair rather than by the powerful story-telling image.

Nothing to say about this one, great detail on his face, the smoke, loosing focus on the background... you've said it's one of your personal favourites, I haven't looked at all your pictures but this one's on of the best I've seen in your gallery.

Thank you very much.

This is one of my all time favorite photos, and I took it because I was angry at the man for staring at me. :) glad my emotions carried me away on this one.
