The grim butcher - Yerevan, Armenia

FullSizeRender (1)

We can weave many tales, stories or fantasies in our minds based on a single image. It doesn't matter whether the form is moving or still, as in this photo. I look at this and feel such brute and primal force. I encountered this male specimen in the Armenian market, and immediately chills began to creep through my veins. Internal dissonance was incited by his eyes, which penetrated in a violent and harsh manner. It probably didn't help that he was standing over dead carcasses, with knives and other butcher equipment directly behind.

I don't like this type of alpha male, with some over-bearing presence, hunting me down with predatory eyes, creating a sense that I could be his next victim. Yet for others, these traits are the pure embodiment of "masculinity."

What do you think about this photo? Does it create internal harmony or discord?

В истории в горах было много банд. Слабое влияние государства.
Есть и сейчас.
Глаза - зеркало души. И учтём род деятельности.
Вполне может быть, что для него человек это просто мясо, как баран.
Никакой духовной тонкости и глубины.
Банально -- люди разные бывают, есть и такие.
In the history in the mountains there were a lot of gangs. The weak influence of the state.
Is now.
The eyes are the mirror of the soul.
And we will take into account the kind of activity.
It may well be that for him the man is just meat, like a sheep.
No spiritual fineness and depth.
Banal -- people are different, there are.
