I thought I had seen the most impressive in your series... I was wrong ! This image is realle eye-catching... though it has some level of depression and sadness too. A definitive combination: high quality and strong provoking sensations.

A very strong, emotional picture of the crib-like bed wight the big pillow. It must have been embarrassing for older youngsters to crawl up over the rails to get up. An excellent capture of the dismay place.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Incredible textures revealed throughout this room with the great lighting! It counters the dreariness of the situation the child must have felt that slept in this "cage".
