I rarely find a photo that has as much impact on me emotionally as "Daddy's Little Girl" has had on me. It's hard to even know where to begin describing my thoughts on this work.

What really speaks volumes to me is the doll itself. What does this little doll represent to this man? Is she the daughter he can never have? Or a daughter he lost? Regardless of the interpretation, this father's painful expression and his almost feeble hold on the little doll tells a sad, heart-wrenching story.

The composition of this shot, as well as the lighting, helps to bring out the emotional aspect of the subject manner. In addition, the subject manner itself is very creative (which is why it stood out to me in the first place). I am not a professional photographer, so if there are any issues with the technique, I am not aware of it. Over-all, you've done a fantastic job with this work. I look forward to seeing more thought provoking, story-telling work from you!

Daddy's little girl... if only I'm able to meet my father, I'd be one. But it won't happen and I never saw my father even once. Great photo, Sir Jason is a great model, very emotive! :heart:

This is a really emotive piece. The contrast between the doll and jzcj5 is really jaunting. With the dolls plastic calm features and is pained expression and posture, it is hard not to be drawn into the photo.

Wow...this is really emotive and hard-hitting. I love that you didn't go into detail in the artist's comment. This is definitely one of those images best left to roll around in the mind of the viewer until it takes on a personal meaning.

Well done on his, and your part. The fact that it hits me on personal levels is astounding and upsetting.

he's a fascinating model. His looks are very adaptable.
Either its a willingness to get into the desired shot, or just general photogenic-ness.
Either way, I do like when he models.

This shot is very evocative. Of lost innocence, of loss and grievance in general.

Really powerful. I love the composition on this, it makes it just that much more uncomfortable feeling.
