  1. I really love the contrast and color saturation, and the play of light and darkness. These photos make me feel of a place that has been worn out by time and the people are tired, lost, confused maybe even a hint of humility. The girl holding her old doll in the fading blue room, indicative of a childhood she never had. The man disturbed and depressed of the future he lost, the house is the evidence of his failure. Therefore the house, at least to me, is a kind of symbol of the deterioration of the lives of these two people in a psychological sense.
    Of course there are certain pictures I feel don’t work for myself. The few photos of the man sitting on the window sill, and climbing out, as well as the one with the girl smoking, looking out of the widow towards the right of the frame. However the other photos work very well, and I feel they deliver a powerful response. The surge of emotions, such as sadness and empathy, enable a part of the story of these people to be told.
    Overall this is such a great series of photos which bring out the human element through the usage of a house reflecting the collection of missteps or tragedies of people’s lives. Great job, when it hits the spot just incredible.
