Like Walking dead

I took this photography in France, near the town Saint-Nazaire. This is a disabled group who were walking on the beach. I was struck by the surreal scene. I chose this as a little provocative because he reminds me of the series “The walking dead”. Beyond the simple decor this photo reminds me of both worlds … to what we belong?

Street photographs are mirror images of society, displaying "unmanipulated" scenes, with usually unaware subjects.

    A wonderful resonant photograph.

    I would be happier if it were compared to the work of Anthony Gormley - http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.antonygormley.com%2Fsculpture%2Fitem-view%2Fid%2F230&h=0&w=0&tbnid=O2zpXtcabilqAM&zoom=1&tbnh=129&tbnw=391&docid=aiLn9AasbTLnSM&tbm=isch&ei=IZJcVIaBBqHV7Aa1soB4&ved=0CAQQsCUoAA

    or to the films' City of Angels' or the original 'Wings of Desire' by Wim Wenders.

    Dis-abled people aren't zombies or half dead - having worked with severely disabled they are often more alive than the average 'able' person.

      My dad who is no longer with us had Polio when he was young and a shorter leg for the rest of his life. He was a full of life. He had gone through a lot. He was not considered disabled by the US Social Security system until he and many others were diagnosed with post polio syndrome in older ages. I don't mind the references because while my dad lived he always had to follow behind us on walks and insisted we go ahead. The image is strong because it shows the struggles disabled individuals have but they are often stronger than to keep moving forward as shown by their movement across the frame of the image. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

      I totally agree with you and this is why this image and this title calls on how people perceive such a scene

    The goal here was not shocked or hurt just to provoke thought. I apologize in advance if this title hits. Most people who see this picture naturally think this way, it is interesting to note. In street photography everything happens very quickly, often the eye is drawn first and reflection comes later.
