"Junior" is a 20 year old man now, sadly unemployed still after finishing his studies at college, he's had quite a few girlfriends already and enjoys a few pints with me every weekend, which is great.
I pictured him behind the mask in Carlisle, on a visit to Cumbria.

It is sad that your son, has a college education, and he is finding it hard to get a job. I think it is about time the government in the UK, sorted this out. There are so many young people including your son, want's to do something after working hard at college. I really hope he finds something soon. I like the image of the mask, and hope both you and your son enjoy a few Newcastle Brown's at weekend

Hopefully his smile is just as gregarious behind that mask as it is in front of it, despite the employment obstacles he is facing! Best of luck to him!

I cannot believe that Junior is already 20 years old! Where does the time go. I hope that he finds a job. That is so frustrating. He looks great in the mask! A fabulous portrait!

I like this photo. I guess it is bad all over with jobs. My friend's husband got laid off several weeks ago, no insurance, and now he needs medical attention. M friend got insurance and it should kick in June 1st.
