This gentlemen gave me permission to take his photograph, whilst he was sitting against a stone wall enjoying his supper of pop corn. People rushing by in their fineries going to clubs and bars in the city. I do not believe they even noticed him or wanted to notice him. He is an alcoholic and does not deny it, he lost his family, his status and business due to alcoholism. It all just started with a bottle of wine.
One thing he finds most difficult to cope with, that people just look past him as if he was a ghost. Even just a smile an acknowledgement that he is a human being.
This was taken in natural light
