Witnessing Violence

These photographs show the human drive to witness and document violent events.   The focus is brought to the faces as they show true emotion brought in the moment adding intensity to the photograph.

You know something tragic has happened by the slightly disturbed face of the woman in the car, as the picture is blurred i am unsure of what is happening and requires more attention and a closer look.
