I captured this child in a deeply reflective mood whilst shooting in the Napier squatter camp... life seemed to weigh so heavily on him despite his young age...

you've captured a really deep in thought expression, which for me is hightened by the wire fence

I love your portrait work because it carries so much feeling and emotion. Here in England we have so many children who stamp their feet and cry because they canít have the latest computer game. I donít wish them harm but think it would help them by changing places with this little boy for a week. Smashing portrait, enjoyed very much.
