Alone at this Party
This image portrays a man standing out in a crowd of people at a party. When I was originally photographing the party, I noticed that the man would usually sit on the outside of the crowd. Isolated. He looked sad and tired of socializing with everyone. When he was walking out of the party to go home, I saw an opportunity to take a portrait photo and I quickly snapped one. I showed him the photo and it seemed like it made his night better. I hope it does that for everyone that sees it as well.

My name is Michael Desta and I am Ethiopian/American. I was born in Arlington, Virginia. I had recently gone into photography as a hobby but now I have fallen in love with it. Some of my work has been sold from close family and relatives to small coffee shops. I really love the work I do and want to pursue it further.
