It must be nice some of this children see the photo and says: "- look! that´s me, in the center of the right eye..." :)
I don't know how someone can find this chilling or amazing. Just the idea that some children are brainwashed into doing this is horrific. Reminds me of the time our parents stood in the same posture just for making someone's point of view. I see a lot of sad children with the future decided and its not gonna be happy or exciting just some days passing and grey hair with a lot of questions about what if and why?
What's so stunning and beautiful ?! The children are holding posters to form a child soldier which obeys and is happy. That's mindwashing in progress.
This is a nice photo, too bad its in North Korea, just out of curiosity, how do Nat Geo get this photo?
QUELLO CHE MI SORPRENDE NEL MODO DI VIVERE OGGI E' CHE SI PERDE LA SALUTE PER FARE I SOLDI.
POI PERDIAMO E SPERPERIAMO I SOLDI PER RECUPERARE LA SALUTE.
SI PENSA TANTO AL FUTURO CHE DIMENTICHIAMO DI VIVERE IL PRESENTE IN TALE MODO, NON RIUSCIAMO A VIVERE NE' IL PRESENTE , NE' IL FUTURO.
VIVIAMO COME SE NON DOVESSIMO MORIRE MAI E MUORIAMO COME SE NON AVESSIMO MAI VISSUTO .
The concept of the ideal child being dressed in military garb is a little scary. Juxtaposed against the cheery visage, I find this chilling.
Good clean shot, except for the oblique lines cutting through the image..
Technicality / Composition / Content / X factor / originality = 7/10 zoom lenses
@Max Tanner Anybody can see that event ;-) North Korea organize tourism tour
@J S All over the world the 'child in military garb' is pretty normal- especially for young boys and teenagers. In the US you can buy pseudo military clothing at Walmart, it isn't officially sanctioned and we just don't make it as official looking, but it's part of our culture.
