Time and Place: A belly

Posted By on Wed, May 28, 2008 at 8:11 PM


Normally I try to resist taking a picture of somebody sleeping in the street. Nevertheless, when I pulled into the gas station to buy some gasoline (at $4.09/gallon) and I noticed this guy out of the corner of my eye, it was just too hard to resist. I had just photographed the governor’s Memorial Day service and I had fallen soldiers on my mind. To me this photo is about a guy who works all day in the hot sun, finds a little peace in the shade on his lunch break and is so tired he falls asleep face down on the concrete. There was another guy sitting up eating lunch behind the back tire and another in the passenger seat, but I purposely cropped them out when I framed the photo in hopes of forcing the viewer to create his own narrative.
