Sadly not unique to LA. There are so many homeless in DC. It breaks my heart to see images like this in real life.

A powerful, silent documentary that dares you to look away.

I hope his dreams are peaceful.

Invisible to many eyes ...
Thanks.

The Dark Side of the Moon - or rather not. I wish it were.

A strong depiction.

I'm talking on and on to myself about the opposing thoughts this image brings to mind.

But for the grace of Congress, there go we all...get ready.

William's comment says it for me as well.

Kevin, oh how I'd love to shoot with you my friend. We're on the same page.

It takes a lot of respect to take a photo like that. Some one else might have - possibly without knowing it - come off like voyeur.

Laurie said...

This is poetry.

And wow, those midtones.

Petrea said...

Paula, you make a good point. This photo is sad without being harsh, Kevin. You are gentle with your subject--truthful without being disrespectful.

Rosemary said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Hauntingly beautiful image. Awesome.

Elisabeth said...

This is photography at its most profound, disturbing . It refuses to let us look away. Thanks.

So tastefully arranged - reminds me of those Civil War photos...

almost looks as if he is covered in sand

There's something vaguely fairy-taiish about the treatment of the subject in this photo. A story about a man on a journey, but from where to where no one --maybe not even he-- knows.

So many more people on the streets these days...

Virginia said...

I agree. Your photos are not exploitive....just a moment captured for us to see and chew on.
