The stadium seems very bright on the white background of the sky, and the attention of the viewer is drawn to the smoke and fire around it. The man seems to be just a black figure whose pose, lack of clothes and weapon reveal native Brazilian. The viewer may ask himself what the man is thinking about while he is watching the stadium burning. The moment seems to be filled with tension and some kind of desperation. The photo looks a bit absurd: there is no logical reason for fighting against modernity with an old and ineffective weapon such as bow; however, it is that absurd that shows the situation clearly. The man on the photo drops his bow understanding that he has no power; however he just still does not know how to fight with this new phenomenon. I think it does not mean that he gives up, the atmosphere of resistance is felt in the air.
After close examination, I have also noticed that a tree in front of the stadium becomes an important component of the photo regardless of photographer`s planning it or not. Natural scenery with trees and the native Brazilian with an archaic bow make the stadium look even more alien and redundant. As the conflict is also connected to the lands demarcation, this piece of nature reminds the viewer of opposition between the urban building and lands preservation. Such composition allows the viewer to see the situation with the eyes of a simple passerby as if occasionally. The viewer is placed in the center of the photo on the same eye level with the photographer.
