Coney Island, Pt. 5

| Scenes |

The second photo is one of a couple moments after he got down on his knee and proposed. I caught it out of the corner of my eye, but was late for the knee photo.


Coney Island, Pt. 4

Flaca, the man pictured at the beginning and end has been a struggling alcoholic for a while now. He has also been sleeping under the boardwalk at Coney Island. He recently decided to take part in a rehab program for 28 days in Queens starting today. All of his friends are really hoping he makes it through and cleans himself up a bit. Old habits are easy to fall into again. So, I'm hoping once that month passes pictures like the ones at the end of the slideshow won't happen anymore. He's a sensitive guy anyway, but he can't seem to process his issues very well when intoxicated. I wanted to document this so he would be able to see himself at this low point and maybe take it as a reference for how he can improve his life.



Check out Danny Wilcox Frazier's Driftless if you haven't seen it yet. We launched it last Tuesday. I've fallen in love with this piece, so go to a quiet place and watch.

It's amazing how novel open spaces get when you live in the city. Even just to pass through a park is such a refreshing contrast from crammed streets and buildings. I finally made it up to Connecticut to visit an old friend of mine. There were woods, open roads and space.
