'Icecream man'


This photo marks the beginning of a series I'm gonna work on while I'm in the USA - 'American Portraits' - a series of people right from the street. You'll probably see a couple of these within the next couple of months - hope you'll like them!

Anyway, about this fellow: I saw this man sitting on a bench in a mall, eating a strawberry icecream. I really wanted a picture of him, so I went over and asked him if I could do a portrait, after which he replied: "What?". I repeated my question and he repeated his 'what'. He then put his icecream down, took off his sunglasses and his hat, and pulled out his earplugs, finally heard the question and agreed to it. It ended up a little awkward, since I had to ask him to put his stuff back on again, cause I really wanted it in the picture.

And that's the story of the first portrait - more to come!
