Distress by Myron Watamaniuk

Times are tough. The economy is bleak and people are suffering on a global scale. Myself included. My frustration and depression are my inspiration for this shot. I wanted to create an image that could express these feeling and at the same time remain faceless. In other words, i am just another person you pass in the street or sit next to on the bus. Suffering in silence.

  • Thank you so much. I had hoped i could capture a some kind of emotion in regards to my most popular feeling, “frustration”. Thank you once again.

    A powerfully emotive piece; the despair is palpable. The lighting, POV and placement of the hands work to build a successful image. Excellent capture my friend!

  • Your grasp of the english language, and your ability to use it in such an informative and meaningful way, is an art in itself. Thanks again for your insight. I always appreciate it.
