he doesn't look too happy to have his photo taken... great texture on his skin and dry lips, and a very effective close crop. I really like the reflection of the photographer in his eyes: one world looking at the other.

What a heart-wrenching shot. His eyes, his whole face seem to tell of a hard life. Beautifully captured though!
