Mentoring A Broken Heart

Will Butler, 10, who suffers from a heart ailment, reacts after beating his mentor Noel Siegert, a junior at Ipswich High School, in a game of Tic-Tac-Toe inside the library at the Doyon School.

My assignment was to photograph Will and Noel interacting during one of their mentoring sessions. I hung around while they played a few games in the school library. After taking photographs for a while the two were able to relax and ignore the camera and I was able to capture this slice of life moment.
