About this piece: Amidst a time of chaos and ambiguity, School Boy blurs the line between reality and illusion. While the subject of this photograph appears to be a young boy, it is an advertisement at a bus stop. This photograph is not double exposed; the tree in the center of the frame is the result of a reflection on the glass covering the advertisement.
