I need to remember about this next time somebody says that DPC images in 2012 are so much better than in the past :)
What an image, amazing.

At first I saw this as only a portrait on human life rather than this particular person. This was probably because his eyes were covered and I couldn't get the instant gratification of seeing into his soul or so they say. No I had to take the roundabout way to know him by what life has done to his withered body and it's only then when I truly see him for what he is and not what I want to see had I looked into his eyes.

This is such a stunning shot, I was sure it would win and I'm surprised it didn't. Congrats on 11th place.

His body is like a 'map' of life! Love your image.
07/24/2007 07:31:32 PM
Others may feel different but some parts of it are a little too black for my likes, reflection from the glasses worked well, 8

Stark, extereme image. Really really impacting and interesting. The reflection in his glasses is mildly irritating - I really wanted to see his eyes more clearly.
07/24/2007 05:18:54 AM
Looks like he's in a POW camp (8)

Shocking to look at, very emotive. Great job with the light. Another top ten.

this is a well-lived life! & a great image!

could have easily cropped a bit tighter above the nipple line, below the clavicle & kept my interest on his face & neck...would tell the "story" in strong fashion.

07/22/2007 09:05:17 PM

this photo upsets me, which says that the reality and detail you have captured is very good, ~9
07/19/2007 07:23:26 PM
excellent use of light, love not being able to see his eyes completly, gives it such an anonymous look. dig it
07/19/2007 05:13:40 PM
Amazing likeness in style to 60's/70's photojournalism. Classic excellence in this portrait!
07/19/2007 04:20:12 PM
wow - deeply emotive. intriguing textures & the fact that his eyes are hidden adds an interesting element...
07/19/2007 12:02:13 PM
talk about skin and bone.
07/19/2007 10:26:19 AM
Nice image looks like something you'd see in black and white LIFE magazine entry. Good luck. psart
07/19/2007 09:54:14 AM
This just breaks my heart. Extremly emotive!
07/19/2007 08:39:29 AM
Wow, that's a little bit scary.
Amazing b/w tones and exposure is dead on for me.
07/19/2007 02:26:11 AM
You are certainly evoking a lot of emotion here. I have so many questions. Who is this man? Why is he so ematiated? What is his life like? Where does he live? I hope you will share the details of this powerful image. 10
07/18/2007 07:46:19 PM
OMG, i'm speechless
07/18/2007 03:27:16 PM
Not *pretty* by any means, but it definitely tells a story and gets the viewer's attention. The bw works very well for this.
07/18/2007 02:17:15 PM
OMG!!!! I hope you gave him something to eat! Great capture.
07/18/2007 02:02:22 PM
...Holy crap! I hope you got this guy some medical attention after you took the picture!
