In 1992, I was asked by the United Church of Canada to produce a photo essay about street youth for display at a major conference it was hosting. I spent 3 weeks working on the project, mainly at night and the early hours of the morning.

In my 'photojournalism' collection.

In the Street Youth...Their Story! photo essay.

    You captured the very essence of street people's lives. What a capture of the body language and look that man is giving for your camera!

    Evidently a lot of the word NO in many ways. The poster on the wall and the obvious attitudes. GREAT photo!
