Suits Him by drifterManifesto Suits Him by drifterManifesto
Yes, it has been done before. A homeless person/ beggar juxtaposed against a beacon of consumerism. What I didn't realize, is that it happens all the time. What I saw when I took this photos was just his lack of footwear (it had just stopped raining). It was only till I got home and had a look at all my photos that I noticed he was right in front of a boutique menswear store. Surely a pauper in front of store like that would make me think. But it didn't, not at the time anyway. Is it just me? Or are all of us failing to notice these powerful everyday images.

I think all of us are failing to see a lot of things. Just recently I had a conversation about this very topic - that art brings out life and makes us notice so much more. Without art, we wouldn't have seen this image (consciously) maybe for another era. All of us on here are artists in our own right - and we specialise in our own little fields, and in bringing out the part of life, or maybe, juxtaposing life with something, or whatever else we do metaphorically - highlighting, etc etc.. What we choose to bring out of life and face life with in a little frame is what we know as art. This is just another of those I like to think of as superb moments... in art form. Almost, in a way, what we choose to think of as great artists are people who just notice things. And bring them out...

PS congrats again on the pun.
