New York Stories: Living in the gutter

A man, seemingly drunk, sleeps in the gutter in lower Manhattan. The richest nation on earth but still so much poverty and unbalanced wealth.

that is pretty sad isn`t it. the photo is well taken with enough distance to preserve dignity. Well done.

It is hard to decide in these situations to shoot or not shoot a picture. Respect for the person on the one hand and on the other hand the sharing with the world of situations that we all could end up in. Or just as a signal that even though we live in a developped/rich country poverty and the "other side" is still something that a lot of people don't think of or want to think (or confronted with) about. That is why NYC is my first photographic love. There is always something to fixate on the silicium that is worth capturing. Let's be thanksfull that we have the wealth and freedom that we can shoot images and let these images form our perception of what we see and feel in our world.
