Wenn man sich überlegt welche Medienmacht der Disneykonzern heute darstellt: Ja, ein sehr treffendes Foto.

Wow - not sure what to think or say about it, or if I could say what I thought it was saying to me without offending anyone. I think that's what's great about it though. It makes you think. Learn a little about yourself by what your thoughts are, I guess, and others by what theirs are too. Overall interesting capture to say the least..which I'm definitely choosing to do on this one, lol :)

Oh my goodness is that creepy. It's the overexposure of the background that really gives this all a graphic ambiance. Exquisitely powerful; satire at one of its most elegant.

This photograph caught my eye, enough to make me comment for the first time since 2006.
I'm in love with all things Disney. This photo makes me think otherwise because it presents how much the media is watching us more than we are watching them, and how much they condition us to be people we are now. They come up with different incentives, new cartoons, advanced technology, amazing-but-corny movies, and catchy tunes to get us to follow into the Disney cult. I don't believe Disney is truly bad, and I don't think this photo focuses on just Disney alone but yeah. I love, despite the lighting, Mickey's face is a bit dark and mysterious; and how coincidently the boy is directly below him on his knees, ready to follow Mickey's orders. It's a bit of an oxymoron, considering Disney being all happy and fluttery, but a good one.
Great job with this photo! The angle of a photo really does do a lot ^^

I think that this ties back to how Disney used to have racism in their movies. That's no longer the case, thankfully, but that's what it made me think of. And ordovicianfauna comment about it summing up the American ego is not accurate at all. : / Disney is all over the world and it isn't as important as everyone would like to think.

It's a good photo however.

It seems to me, because of the position that the man or boy, depending on his age which seems pretty young, is in, the inclusion of the backback as well as him being black, that the picture is making a comment about coming from somewhere considered less civilized and now being entered in society. However, it also seems to say to me that now that they have entered society they have given up on their past beliefs and now worship the media. I came to this conclusion because of the subtitle as well as Mickey being standing looking forward, while the man's gaze is downward while on his knees with his education (the backpack) slouched behind him as if it is pushing him down making him subservient to what the media or popular culture is telling him.

Is this something to do with your supposed opinion that Disney is racist? I don't think it's true TBH, but I could be wrong.

That's my first impression, based mainly on the title and description.
Apart from that I consider it to be very interesting street shot. Disturbing for sure; a bit creepy.
It makes me also wonder what were the conditions that allowed you to get this kind of washed out background.

I like the meaning behind this.
I think the emptiness of the composition is good too as it allows people to look at this and make up their own minds about what they think of it is trying to say.
Why did you decide to do this? :) it's a great idea
Well done
