SAINT LOUIS DAILY PHOTO - PAIN
Tony Marr, Jr., presented hard story that needed telling. A young black man finishes school but can't find more than a low-paying entry level position. He is unable to provide for his girlfriend, sick with advanced kidney disease, and their child. His mother won't help him and her boyfriend is threatening. He turns to crime, which ends in disaster. The burden is unbearable.
This show was really tough for my camera. The lighting was all blue and dark. I wasn't happy with the results in the color shots but sometimes you can convert to B&W and get good images. It works well with the somber themes.
There are many more of these photos, too many for a blog post. I'll but them all on Facebook.
