This past week I was notified about usage of a photo I uploaded to sxc.hu years ago named Underneath. The New York Crime Commission used it in a pamphlet named Guide to Juvenile Justice in NYC. The photo is displayed on page four.
The composition consists of an under-bridge shot taken of a boy; his head appears to be hidden in sorrow or shame. The scene’s backdrop of worn bricks is representative of the state of his life, warn and in need of help. Empty darkness to the right portrays the loneliness he must feel.
