Rationale ~

I watched my partner walk over to his solemn friend and gently embrace him. The friend sat and gratefully accepted the love. The moment was engorged with sincerity, a childlike freedom and love. I wanted a candid shot that captured how touched I felt in that moment, whilst maintaining the character and masculinity of the men. This photograph was taken on an iPhone, focusing the light meter on the hugging arm. I created a comic like adaptation of the image in a phone application, to capture the childlike freedom. To maintain the masculinity of the men, I used hard, bold lines. The pink hew then refocuses the image on love.
