The empty chair in this photo represents all those kids who aren’t love or protected. The starkness and shadowing represent the despair I feel every time there is another news story about a broken, abused or murdered child. As a father, I take each and every one of these stories like a punch in the gut.
The Fuji XT-2 is a remarkable camera. Small and handy, it renders amazing black and white images when in ACROS mode. When paired with the Fujifilm 23mm f/2 lens, you have a near perfect street and art lens. I pushed the contrast and clarity just a touch in Lightroom, but otherwise, this is an out of the camera image.
