As a child, I was constantly pulled between rich and poor, healthy and weak, free and bound. I had to learn to navigate the different walks of life that I was exposed to which caused me to become tired and weak by the end of the day. I would sit in the backseat of my father's car waiting tiredly to reach my bed and sleep the night away. This picture aims to capture the essence of a tired and worn thin child.


This is such an honor! Thank you Nikon for this amazing moment! I hope other people can relate to this photo as I believe we are all constantly tired, but we try so hard to hide it away.
