Recycler 2016

I read that the city is thinking about prosecuting the people who make their humble living recycling cans & bottles for 5¢. Apparently the city needs the cash to balance their books…

“Homeless and Fearless” 2015

They woke up a homeless man by kicking the box that he was sleeping in and insulting him, and he grabbed a homemade weapon of some sorts and took after the group.

Then I watched the group back down as they realized their joke had gone too far. The last time I saw one guy stand up to this many guys without displaying fear was in 1979…

I’m not looking for a certain type of person when I go out to shoot. Every now and then I take a picture which bothers me to no end. This one may have been best left in a folder, but it does bring up a few questions about mental health and how people are treated in New York, and of course America….©Matt Weberdrug-addict-meth
