 This picture is shot with the imagination of the state of mind in a human  form, battling its own depression, melancholia, misery and woe. Imagined to be  a heavy weight of sad times the African child suffers.  A call to blurry vision, obscure thinking, strains and overburdened mindset that later negates their optimism.

This picture is themed with Trepidation, Anxiety and  Terror the Female Child would grow to face. The fear of sexual abuse, defilement and different negativity they battle while growing and after. This picture depicts the readiness, positive vibes and self reassuring strength and hope to overcome the challenges.

This shot portrays the hidden scars in the Male child. It illustrates the disintegrated, split and cracked hidden background everyone refuses to see in them. The total opposite of what is visible to the outer world, to their beliefs. The huge “injury” they keep to themselves to prove the point of being a “Male”.
