A man first: hours before a U.S. Navy sailor's overseas deployment
The picture was taken inside a coffee shop near an airport just two hours before this man was scheduled to fly out to his next U.S. naval station. He spent his last hours with family and friends. I think black and white captures his youth, his composure, and his concerns of the upcoming overseas deployment. All of these elements work together to display this man's evocative handsomeness.
