The Scream: Prisoner "X" Uprising

By pablophotographer
Last of the Prisoner's "X" Trilogy, the Uprising. It represents time progress and story change. Shot in a broad daylight in contrast with the other two and at a different location, since the original Prisoner "X" was transferred to a new (cell. lol) site, unknown to me. On this occasion I used the opportunity laid in front of me of the cross bar to imply a violent evolution of the theme. The choice of the specific "face" is based on the manufacturing error (?) providing a feature of "tears" around the eyes (due to "possible use of tear gasses") and the "foam" around the mouth, underlying the tension, the frustration and the anger. The inclusion of a part of another face at the bottom is suggestive of a hostage situation, or a spread of the Uprising.
All rights for the Prisoner's "X" Trilogy reserved. Not much of an art-work but a good example of the potential of the keen understanding of the world, and the shapes of the environment around us. The personification of the fence base was based on the shape of two eyes, a nose created by letter "X" between the eyes and a big opening under the "eyes". Quite basic as a facial shape with a striking resemblance to Munch's painting "the Scream". As always, comments and critique are welcomed.

Neat composition, the tension between the scream and the diagonal bars, all within a tight crop.

I like this very much!
Working in the plant hire industry I am very familiar with Heras fence panels. It's a great concept, & very well executed.
This is my favourite out of the three.
