The expression on his face tells the whole story and is what makes this so hard for me to turn away. At first, I thought he had his head on a baseball base, and was thinking that "home" might be a clever title - but now I see the title is "saint." Having read the comments below, I understand why it's named that, in a ironic sense. I hope this young man gets another chance at things - it looks like he's had all the hardship he can handle - and that's easy for me to relate to, hence the attraction.

If the goal of art is to move the audience by engendering an emotional response, then this picture certainly does it for me.

Good choice on going with black and white, color would have really tainted the beautiful, yet honest reality of his expression.

A most interesting reading of the comments above. I think this is deserving of a DD simply because it HAS made people think, and argue, and reason out their responses. That in itself makes it worthy.

I also happen to like it and think it is good. Congratulations!

I'll agree with the opinion that the art on the site is to bring awareness to the artists. I'll also agree with Strong Rad and his harsh reality of the situation of the site. Many artists go unrecognized, some because they don't subscribe to the site, and various other reasons. The art world is full of people who love this shit. It's the same as the music world, something by blah blah whoever the hell comes out, the radio plays it and every teenage kid and their grandma eats it up. Doesn't mean it's good.
This is photography. Nothing about this shot is original or makes you think. To me, it says nothing, I feel nothing by looking at this. It's a boy against a concrete wall.

Love it. A great combination of minimalist elements and interesting details.
Did you intend the square to be a halo, or did you come up with the title afterwards?
