Newsstand And Vendor

1997.
The detail is amazing and if you get a magnifying glass you can read what’s in the candy. Medium format TLR (film)

I made a 16 x 20 a few weeks later, matted it, and brought it to the newsstand guy.  I told him I made it for him.  No charge.  He refused to take it.  I said, why not?  His answer: I don’t want to be reminded of what I do all day.

Good and very sad answer.  He’s still there, now in a steel stand, but in the same spot, 20 plus years later.
