Shop

Harking back to the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s salesman often had to travel across the country for months at a time… such disconnected souls.

Maybe he is free and just didn’t want to sell anymore.
However, we are all salesmen in one way or another.

    By the look of all the empty bottles against the fence , he might have thrown a few back before he crashed out . That is a funny pic.

    Awesome work Paul, love how you’ve constructed this piece! Disconnected with life until he’s allowed to be free to feel the light……that’s how I see it…Fabulous!

    I think his car broke down. He started to try to walk out of the desert. He ran out of water. The temperature was 40 degrees. He peeled of all his clothes in his delirium. The he came across a rancid pool of water, drank from it and died an incredibly painful, lonely death. This shot is the Forensic photo taken at the scene. His eyes had been picked out by crows. Strangley though, when they uploaded the images at the police station, there was this weird anomoly on the image. They had no explanation for it.

    P.S Glad a scorpion didn’t bite you on the bum…………Good looking dead guy…………….Amazing backdrop………love it to bits……….clever you.

    Salesman surrounded by the rubbish and pollution we used and he sold. His body will return to the soil the chattels of his and our lives usually don’t…………….this is a powerful image with a strong message for me, thanks Paul.
