To me, the shot is all about the relationship between youth and adulthood. I love how the young boy is the center of the image surrounded by men whose faces are purposely not included in the shot.  It pulls the focus exactly where it needs to be. What makes this image stand out is the contrast between all the mens' hands and the young boy holding onto two of them with both his young hands. The framing of the boy surrounded by hands and then he himself uses them to frame directly around his face is perfect. Beautiful balance and great use of black and white.
