The Image I Like
I like this image because of the statement it makes about America. People are so caught up in their own bullshit that they can't even notice a suffering person right in front of them. But even if they did notice this man, chances are they wouldn't acknowledge his existence anyway. This homeless man represents an inconvenient truth about society that many people do not want to accept or talk about.
I love how this photo juxtaposes two very different worlds. The oblivious women inside are happy. The weathered man outside looks broken. The "happy" inside looks warm and inviting, which complements the feeling found there. The outside looks cold and bleak, which too complements the feeling it provokes.
