Story behind the photograph
This is a first photo in a new concept on Photoblogs.org where there will be one photo per week specifically published for critique by participating members. The details behind the concept are described on Photoblogs.org Critique discussion group.
Paraffinalien is a young man I’ve come across at CoastFest – a local cultural festival. This portrait was taken during his preparation for fire twirling show later that night. I wanted to show his total commitment and passion for body movement, joy of his art and alternative and colourful life he obviously lives.
