  • 21. Judgement
    • I think that the photograph is very strong and he got his point, that the social unrest in Haiti was bad, across. The rule of foreground and background really helps bring together the photo because the photo isnt focused on the subject but rather on the destruction he is bringing. That is what makes the photograph powerful.
