BOY WITH HOUNDS
To pose this pair of fine hounds atop their doghouse, the photographer has enlisted the services of a boy in a crooked-buttoned cardigan sweater. Some of the most captivating photographs are those where children are center-stage. In spite of their often tattered clothing, children are never depicted as downtrodden or "less than". Rather, they have a special nobility.
