I'm not sure who the model is but I love this photograph. The shallow depth of field, pose and setting is a wonderful combination. To me this represents strength, beauty and a strange calmness. His face is relaxed despite his arms being tense from hanging on and I like how his feet are positioned. Our eyes read the photo following the barrier and after we admire his looks we realize this is set in a city (probably New York). The reason I've said strange calmness is that it is hard to find serenity in busy cities and to stop and look at something unusual is refreshing.
