all the world's a stage. often, we are spectators who feed on drama. for me, the shirtless boy, especially, depicts this morbid want for drama, tilting to see more. the boy with hands akimbo portrays helplessness. this is a great image full of context, and full of suspense.

The fire seems to reflect on the young guy's back, incredibly beautiful beyond the drama !
