Al-Capone Children

Author Comments

Child guards of the now defunct labor system: the GULAG. They don't look much like children.
In those times children were separated from parents and would face multiple fates - die, education until old enough to work, work until death, or be recruited as a guard. The benefit of children being guards was simple: they lived. But they were very, very easy to manipulate, mentally and emotionally. Worse, they were conditioned to have no conscience. They would kill inmates for the most innocuous of reasons and would likely laugh and smile as they did it. Rehabilitation to the world during the period of De-Stalinization did not come easy in the Eastern Bloc.

Characters: 11-year olds Vera and an unnamed boy.

First pleasure piece I made in quite awhile. Planning to make more quite soon.

That was the focus this time. Lighting of clothes and facial features in a dark environment. Plus, you know, kids. Hope it carries over for the next one!

I tried especially hard to find the right balance of color and effect without detracting from the children themselves. Glad it resonated well with you!
