I am not your punching bag

I am busy with a project called a series of unfortunate events which portrays issues like abuse, human trafficking etc. To me that is a voice that I feel people can not just turn a deaf ear to although people has become so accustomed to the reality that they are no longer shocked by what is happening. Nonetheless, it should not be ignored. My daughter had a very bad fall, face first on the tar road when she was riding bike and it gave me the perfect opportunity to add to that collection as it looks like she was abused.What I personally love about this photo is the butterflies on the dress she is wearing which symbolizes new life. Its a juxtaposition to the way she is lying dead still "beaten" almost to oblivion.Nikon D5300 with 500mm prime F1.4 lens1/640th of a secIso 640

  • Hi, Nicolene.


    Please check out Danie's latest post on changes coming to Photo Critic and DPC. For the interim, the DPC instructors will no longer critique each photograph. This is a temporary arrangement while we are working on DPC's new online platform. From now on, we expect that each member, who uploads photos, will comment on, and rate,  at least three other photo uploads. To maintain some consistency, the DPC team will still provide administrative tasks; i.e. featuring photos, and running weekly and monthly competitions.


    To bring you up to date with the changes and the reasons, therefore, please check out the links below:
