About the project

A young man stands on the middle of a street, overlooking a city landscape and teetering very close to the edge. Clad in brown with auburn hair and piercing green eyes, he is the visual epitome of purity and innocence.

There is a focus on brightness and natural light during the bulk of the scenes which is a vast contrast to many other street photos. Indeed, there are only a couple of moments which could be termed “gritty”.

The photo delivers an elegant and achingly touching score that sumptuously highlights the humanity of the scenes whilst revealing the emotional core that is devastating to behold. The sound editing in general was really affecting, especially during one scene where Cole is left in a state of confusion by mortar fire with deadening silence.
