  1. Oh sad day.

    This is NOT a karate stance.

    It’s an impersonation of Ultraman – a hero from a japanese TV series. The series was very popular with boys his age (and my age) at the time.

  2. Ultraman~ OK, well this is the “official” title the artist provided. It can be whatever you would like it to be that is the beauty of documentary photography….. do you really know for sure Ultraman was part of this kids’ life in 1977 in Wilkes-Barre , PA? MAY THE SPECIUM RAY BE WITH YOU.

  4. I love this shot, it’s flawless and full of joy. Would love to see this image recreated with the boy as an adult in the same street.
