WomanBlackDressRuns-1988 copyAs I have said many times, I can’t stand when I crop a woman’s toes by mistake, and this is good example of such an error…I think every single inch of a woman should available for us to admire…

Rachel

RACHEL-1999RACHEL2005 copyScreen Shot 2014-11-12 at 8.48.32 AMI met Rachel on my corner in 1999 and she was just a lost girl “Seeking a Little Kindness”. I gave her a copy of Howl since she said she liked poetry. I bumped into her again six years later and she had grown up a bit and life on the street was starting to show. Still seeking kindness she appeared on the cover of a very powerful photo book a couple of years later, much to my surprise. I saw her again a few years ago with her hair bleached platinum blonde and didn’t take another picture.
