The Inner Fight
This photograph represents a young man struggling with homosexuality and prejudices. I took this photograph in Nørrebro, Copenhagen. I was immediately caught by the scene. The man seemed lost in his own thoughts, sitting on that bench, right under the spotlight. I took the photograph in a rush, I didn't want him to see me, since for me he was the "perfect subject". After I took the picture, I felt almost guilty and I wanted to know more. I approached him, told him who I was and what I was doing and showed him the picture, expecting the worst reaction. He opened up like we were long term friends and told me his story. He was very curious about me taking his photo and asked me to print it for him. Michal has now the photo on his wall and so do I.
