No flowers, no beautyfull landscape but crude reality, this is where photography can help mankind. Althought I feel bad after "stealing" this man so small private circle.

I once wanted to make a book from this theme, a kind of counter-vip publish, the greatest thing IMO in these men or women so much people consider as poor is their eyes, they are gems compared to the eyes of what we're used to call powerfull men...
