Artist's Description

In Australia a magazine known as “The big Issue” is sold on city streets by vendors that are generally homeless, some have intellectual or physical disabilities and some are struggling with addictions. All of the vendors have been marginalised through their circumstances and are looking to improve their lives.

I saw this guy selling an edition of the Big Issue in Melbourne and was struck by the contrasting lives of the vendor himself and the handsome, rich and famous Viggo Mortensen on the cover of the mag.
