Mysterious man in Edinburgh

I saw this strange man hiding in a car park in Edinburgh. He's one of Our Nation's Sons, part of a project by artist Joe Caslin designed to question the current representations of young men in today’s society and the way that the media openly ridicules and demonises this generational group. It was early (as early as one gets up during the Edinburgh fringe) and still a bit misty walking through the backstreets of the city and this young man suddenly loomed out of the landscape at me. Striking and sort of serene, somehow.
