The picture shows an innocent boy who fell victim to a ‘bomb blast’ in Peshawar, Pakistan on the 31st of August 2012. This blast occurred in a busy market near a mosque at around four o’clock in the afternoon. The bomb was located on a pick up truck stationed in a mechanic shop. The blast managed to take the lives of twelve people and injured several others. No one has taken responsibility for the explosion but it is believed that the local militia were involved in some way.

The center of the picture focuses on the red color of the blood while the edges of the picture are a lighter color. Red is an emotionally intense color that depicts danger and chaos. It excites emotions usually motivating the viewer to take action. The white edges, comprising of the nurses and doctors white clothing, are trying to suppress the intensity of the red, which signifies that they are attempting to help their injured patient.

Their body language indicates haste and provides us with an insight of what they go through every time there is a terrorist act in their areas. The blur caused by the police officers hand, and the man on the left s hand gives the picture the effect that there is a lot of motion taking place in the picture. The woman on the left appears to be a nurse as she is covered in a full white veil. She seems to be cleaning the boys wound, possible preparing his arm to receive medication via syringe. The man next to her appears to be the doctor as he is wearing a pair of glasses and seems to be in his forties due to his greying beard.

The police officer standing at the back does not seem to be doing much as his lower body is only visible in the picture. The man on the right appears to be in a state of shock as one can observe that he is holding his cellular phone upside down in his left hand. He could have possibly been the person who carried the boy from the area where the bomb detonated as he has a large bloodstain on his ‘Kurta’.
The photographer, Mohammad Sajjad, is attempting to highlight the everyday dangers present in the country. This boy is just another victim amongst the other thirty five thousand killed this year due to terrorist activities in the country. The death toll in the country has risen to such a large number that every person being killed is just another insignificant addition. The residents of Pakistan have become immune to the news of people being killed in their country as it occurs on such a...
