Description: This portrait will cause some discussion and i will be glad to discuss this. Some question will come up! What the photographer did! Did he just use the opportunity to get a nice emotional picture? Did the photog take care of her privacy? Did the photog care about her and her emotions and feeling? Is he just using that small girl? And some more controversy question will come up!

I can ensure you that the story behind her is as simple as it can be. What you see here is true and real! I mean real tears and real sadness. I can ensure that she smiled again after some minutes later and that we had a quite nice day. She give me the chance to explore so much about here. So much about her life. So much about me as the one who took this picture! It is like this on my tours through the villages! I meet unbelievable people! Unbelievable stories! Some makes me cry and some makes me happy and some makes me think and remind me that i am lucky to grow in a society which provides me so much comfort

I see, you still have doubts about taking this picture. And I understand you very well and I see you are a nice man. And an honest man too.
It is useless to state that this portrait is a great one - you already know that your work is very good. Your question is about ethics. For me you have done it right. Others may think otherwise.

Robert Mueller replied:

Thank you Rui, but this doubts i also needed to learn. Concerning the subject is a think which can easily be forgotten due the hunt for a good shot! I had my doubts on showing this but a good friend helped me to find this decision! I am glad you like it!

Well Robert, when we photograph a sadness emotion some people can judge us we are taking advantage from one situation to make a good 'shot' but, if you photograph someone smiling maybe you are not accused of do it. But, for you (and me) are only catch a feeling that could be sad, happy, serenity, hungry, etc. And what's one of the most rewarding situation for a photographer (at least for me) ? Catch not only the image but the people feelings, and you do it in this photo. Keep doing because, I think, it's one of photographer mission when make portraits.

Robert Mueller replied:

Thank you very much Jorge for your words. Yes i try to capture with my portraits emotions and the aim of the people. I hope i can get some more which i can show here!

Well... sadness, war, disasters... agree or not is what makes the most famouse photos around the world.
Sadness shouldn't be hidden, as well as hapiness neither.
All I can say is that this is one of those portraits that you can´t take your eyes out of it.

Robert Mueller replied:

Yes you say right Artur! Thank you for your words!

Very delicate and sensitive Robert..i really appreciate your sensitive way of exposing the reality..somehow we all share our unique way of seeing the world,first with our senses,and then learning how to translate them with the current tecnology avaiable...what it touch´s me here is the feeling,in portuguese we call it "sentimentos"that goes deeper than the emotion..for me ,a Photography to be "observed" from within...Deep Peace in this New Year that is coming..;-)
P.S.
and if you were exploring the situation..you would never got this feeling from her eyes or "soul"..;-)..keep the Good Work,Robert!

Robert Mueller replied:

Thank you very much Alexandre for your words! Robert
