your portrait work reminds me of ragnar axelsson's stuff, as it's emotional, authentic and story telling (and b&w)!
great shot and congrats on the posthumous blue!

I know this must be Gunn the infamous nosehair photographer but I can't stop myself from giving this a Posthumous Blue Ribbon. It's just so painfully beautiful.

This could be a Gunnar shot. If it's not, then you are as good as he is, in which case congratulations are in order. I admire the capture of childish sentiment without the usual cloying sweetness. It feels authentic.
