Open the Door

Continuing in my series on Refugees. This image was taken from a photo journalist at a scene where Refugees were being tear gassed as they tried to cross a border in Europe. The more involved I get with the series, I am finding the crowds very interesting. As I picked my way through the image, I realized that a lot of the crowd were photo journalists documenting the incident, it became hard to discern who was who in the crowd.
I took a chance and placed water on the image of the man after I had completed him, the blurred watermark around him feels like the crowd that was propping him up.
