SAD response

I chose this work because I found this picture very interesting. The man
looks sad and lonely. I guess I would be sad and lonely too if I was
standing, shirtless, in the woods...

I chose this work because I found this picture very interesting. The man
looks sad and lonely. I guess I would be sad and lonely too if I was
standing, shirtless, in the woods of Minnesota. It looks like the summer
time, so I can only imagine how hot and humid it must be for this guy. He
must be getting all bitten up by mosquitos and his feet probably hurt
because he's walking around with no shoes on. He looks out of place, like
he doesn't belong in his environment. I like how the artist made this photo
black and white to diplay the depression and lack of anything exciting in
the picture. Had she used colors, it would have been bright and
happy-looking. The man's environment has affected him by getting his feet
all muddy. This could represent how experiences that we have and other
things we surround ourselves with can attach themselves to us and become a
part of who we are.
