Focal Point: Insight into emotion

Sometimes a photo captures a mood so well, with such immediacy, that it’s difficult to write about it beyond saying: “Wow, there it is”. While covering  the UAE versus Brazil Fifa U17 World Cup football match in Abu Dhabi, staff photographer Razan Alzayani captured one of those moments, where you instantly see from the young lady’s face that she might not be enjoying the drumming as much as the rest of the crowd. Your eye can spend time roaming around the frame, but you keep landing back at the centre, with the wonderful expression and body language that says it all.
