Old vs young, male vs female,the innocent vs the tainted, clean vs dirty, top vs bottom. Whether intentional or not, the photographer has captured so many contrasting elements in this picture, leaving the observer with a lot of information to internalize. What's more: despite the contrast, the capture is done at the most appropriate time, i.e when they are united by one activity: communicating (which they all seem to be doing among themselves) Such a great capture.
