This closeup portrait mainly focuses on the tears from the eyes. A light to the side of the model will have been used to create the half light and held shade effect. I like the emotions that can be seen through the tears making the photo strong although the eyes cannot be seen. This will have been made black and white in photoshop.
Most parents fear the safety of their child, but what if their child was a danger to themselves. Self harm is a very important issue and using photography and my artwork I feel I could really address the issue.
