Image by an Iraqi artist taken in an orphanage. This little girl has never seen her mother, so she drew a mom on the ground and fell asleep with her. Such a sad picture. I can only imagine the heartbreak children like this feel.
I love the contrast of light and dark in this photo. I also love the symmetry that the shadow creates (a line down the middle of her face) Also, I love close ups on emotion, this draws in the audience and makes them feel the emotion.
