The winning shot in the Syrian Baby Carrying Competition!
Look at this brave Syrian, bare-chested “noble savage”, looking a bit awkward in front of the cameras, but we can work on that, and it almost adds to the mood and “genuine” look of the photo. The cradling of the baby is a very dramatic pose, and the terribly undernourished Syrian baby, neatly caressing its own sore paw… What a horrific injury, I mean what would you expect after surviving a bombing and being crushed by a building, look at that fresh oh-so-white clean bandage, obviously the medics worked very hard on patching up this hardy little Syrian super-baby!! Why it looks so fake it must be real!!! And that’s the whole point! I would have liked to see some white powder foundation make-up dusted on to the actors, and perhaps a dab of that costly fake blood, but I am just being a critic.
