      Thanks for posting this Wallace. I have to agree with you this isn’t a typical photo produced by a camera club member. We’ve had years of being conditioned into producing technically high quality images that conform to the ‘rules’ of acceptable photos of a high standard.
      There again this portrait and many of the others on Enda Bowe’s website are quite subjective. They’re more about the emotion and atmosphere they create. From a technical point of view some would consider them poor photos, but others look beyond that and see a message behind the photo. He does seem to be a successful professional photographer. Having said that not the kind of photos I would take.

      But the pensive look set in the stark reality of living in a land of troubles is a valuable portrait of the times. Club judges would not recognise that skill–but– then highly acclaim the many digital snapshots of people acting out , where theirs is the skill and not the photographer——as I have said so often.

      The image I am intrigued with is the one of the family going on Holiday, this is a portrait!
