A fist raised in protest from behind the bars at Toms Prison, Manhattan, on 28 September, 1972. Legendary photojournalist Jean-Pierre Laffont captured the changing times of New York City, covering everything from free love to the grim and gritty '70s.
this image shows a lot of emotional through the dull colors that have been used. straight away it tells a story and makes you want to know more. the angle in which it has been took is really effective and it makes the child at the bottom of the stairs stand out a lot. i like how there is just one thing to focus on in this image it brings all your attention to the child and thats all.
Candy Cigarette This photo, titled Candy Cigarette, not just displays something, it tells a story. It is both emotional and beautiful. This is what the originality of black-and-white-photography is all about.
