Story behind the photograph
OK, the only reason I could call this photograph the Drummer and 4 Dementors is the distance to the “Dementors” and the fact they are not recognisable in the photograph.
In stark contrast to the drummer, who is crossing the road with his head high up, energised, caring his drum with a clearly visible purpose the four youths in the background are, like the Dementors, lifeless. All dressed in black, heads down and drugging their feet they seem to lack a purpose and direction. Sadly, an image too many young people seem to project.
