What a painful shot Kevin.
Wow. I'm constantly amazed by your ability to capture beauty in everything. Excellent work, as always. :)
Honest, bleak and hard to look at.
what is the story behind this?
Kevin, you are traveling far and deep in your photos. Your poetry has taken you beyond words.
Kevin - This picture, this picture of pain and beauty is all consuming to me. As Bob has asked, and myself before with your work, "What is the story?" Not that it doesn't speak your picture, but it leaves me wanting to ask, who, where, why, and how do you come away from such an event, are you changed?~robert
Wow i have never been able to get a shot with as much emotion in it as this. Great work. Carla
I think you're a secret priest.
I ask the same question as Bob: "the story behind?"A very powerful image...
can't look at this one bro
Ditto all those wows. But maybe especially Rosemary and Paula. Powerful! Like others, I'm a little interested in the . . . backstory, but I think the picture stands perfectly well on its own, as it must. Do the visual arts talk about The New Criticism, which says we must not listen to backstories from artists, scholars, biographers, or whomever? Instead, we must allow and demand that the work stand on its own. Not many literary folks subscribe to it anymore, but it was the big theory in the 1930s - 60s, and it still makes sense to me.

Shot of a lifetime, Kevin. I have to agree with Petrea and Paula: poetry beyond words, a secret priest. I would think only a cinematographer could have captured something like this after much preparation and filming an artist/actor. This is verité and art, and stands alone, no back story needed. He is Job, he is everyman, he is the soul made visible. Dude!-Kim
