This is a composite of two images. Well, clearly, but here’s the backstory. The top image is from a suburban subdivision in San Jose, taken during a trip my wife Donna and I took in the summer of 2013 trying to document a bunch of different “Wall Streets” in the state. Click here for more information about that trip.
The second images was taken earlier this year near the corner of 4th and Wall streets. The gentleman pictured is clearly just hanging on, though I don’t know exactly what’s going on with him. I’ve been back to Wall Street in Los Angeles many times, and I haven’t seen him again. In any event, I hope the visual irony (I’m big on that clearly) is clear in this one.
You can see this at my current show, which is at the Vape Supply Co. on 129 E. 6th St in downtown Los Angeles, until Sept. 6.
