DD MM YYYY
Mario Giacomelli's Scanno Boy photograph discloses to the viewer the photographer's sole intention to focus their attention on the boy in the middle distance of the image. The photographer subjects the image to a narrow depth of field that focuses on the boy while the women's faces are blurred. To photographer vignettes the image stressing to the viewer the significance of the boy in the photograph amid a blurred surrounding. The boy walks gazing straight at the camera in an upright posture displaying his confidence to the viewer. On the contrary, the women in front are deliberately avoiding looking at the camera showing their lack of confidence and suggestive psychological and emotional distress. While the Scanno Boy photograph focuses on a confident boy walking oblivious to his surrounding, the gloomy and disinterested faces of the women are suggestive of a society battling social issues.

The boy, though in a middle distance, is looking directly at the camera. Two women are walking in front of the boy. The woman on the left is older than the woman on the right. Both women are walking away from the camera while the boy is walking straight towards the camera. The women are avoiding eye contact with the camera choosing to look on the ground. The women are wearing heavy dark clothes while the boy is wearing light clothes with a sweater and a white instead of a heavy jacket like the women. Behind
