While banging around external HD's of archived images last weekend, searching for file images of my older concert work to add to the previous Cyndi Lauper post below, I came across these two images side by side in a "sent" folder; meaning that I'd already sent both images to my stock picture agency. Very strange juxtaposition(s) on how these two images ended up together... (African child scavenging for plastic vs. a meal in a Rockefeller Center restaurant in NYC, Black vs. White, Poor vs. Elite, Rural East Africa vs. Metropolitan New York City, hunger vs. an opulent meal...) -cg.
