This is a photo of a seller of the Big Issue a weekly newspaper.

I have bought a few and they are not a bad read actually.

The photo was taken on the corner of Flinders and Swanston St Melbourne.

    good detail – at first glance I felt she was defeated (my stereotype) then I noticed her sunnies! almost Dame Ednaish they speak of a larger character than the photo first reveals … her hand is interesting too

  • I have been looking at the Big Issue sellers around town and I have a project planned ( for a long time now lol ).

    What I have seen is they are a bunch of real individualists all with very different stories and personalities.

    Its easy to stereotype them but when you look closer, like you did with the glasses, they become different. The unpeople transform.

    Very few people can see these people for what they are. Maybe one day I will actually do the project. Too much thinking not enough action lol.
