This image captures the humanity of the syreet — good or bad I love it!

LUST & RUM

The image below clearly shows a man sitting in a shop front, he is wearing a hospital gown under his coat, he has patient ‘tags’ on both wrists and is clutching a couple of dollars. Above him stands an NYPD Cop. The angle and framing of the shot adds to its dynamic.

A very powerful and contentious image, made all the more dramatic when reduced to black and white. I thought long and hard before posting this. I am aware of the possible social sensitivity of this shot and how such a provocative and emotive image could be interpreted or perhaps misinterpreted. It is designed to challenge and not to inform. The truth and meaning of this image lies solely in the  heart and mind of the viewer and their own preconceptions.
