— I received 3 awards for this photo. One international — World Press Photo 1st prize
in category Observed Portraits, the most important in my career, and two local awards. Without any expectations, I sent a photo to all three competitions. At the very moment of the creation of this photograph, I was at a stage in my life when I decided I wanted to have a child. By making such an important life decision, I became much more sensitive. While I photographed this child, my thoughts were focused on his future and on the fact that he would have to go through the turbulent life-span to make up for this horrible tragedy that struck him.
