Very interesting place, well shown in a photo...

Hi Sylvie
Good scene, love the colour difference between the face and the red brick. Was the face made from Plaster or stone? I'm trying to work out who the face represents? I think it may be an African man, if so the contrast of the white paster/stone is even more strange.
Well seen and TFS

Hi there!
Another vertical shot with different levels...
It's interesting that the face is behind a window, although the panes remind of bars in a cell.
But at least he's above the brick wall, that pale white face, which happens to be looking away. Maybe camera-shy ;)
An interesting compo and image, really. It can be understood in a lot of different ways.

good shot..
eyes looking so uncertain.. the scene makes me feel a little bit inquiete..
colors taken perfecty.. and the same is POV..
usually (for u) great photografic idea..
Best regards

hi Sylvie,

So lonely ... but you saw him :)
great compo and colours.
see u ,inn :)

hello Sylve.
Voila plusieurs fois que je passe sur cette photo .
Cette tête représente un prisonnier derrière le plomb de la fenêtre.
A l'arrière plan on pourrait imaginer que c'est son passé qu'il délaisse pour tenter une nouvelle chance.
La composition est belle, le mariage du rouge et du blanc frappe les yeux. Tu as réalisé un beau shoot , bravo


Very cool ! I didn't see this when I was there :)
