This was taken in NYC little italy. I saw this man sitting here in a Rodin's thinker attitude and I tried to capture this moment, trying to arrange the grafical stairways to give an impression of movement as well as restraining frame : an allegory of Life, if you wish, and it made me think of how Henri Cartier-Bresson managed to make ordinary people move us like we were family, same planet, same brotherhood of humanity. We may think that our life is encaged but an escape is always possible, you can access to different levels. Nevertheless, at some point, you must get up your feet !
