Hard knock life…

Everytime I walk in Dublin I can find these people with cups. Some of them are there regularly  in the same spot. People probably know them by now 🙂

Sad but true!!!

  1. I really like the framing of these shots, the way the walking people have been made anonymous to allow the focus to settle on the ‘people with cups’ – it’s a reversal of the way society tends to recognise the people.

  2. You have caught beauty in the what is seemingly the un-beautiful. Your images show how people are either unaware of their surroundings or chose to ignore what should be the un-ignorable. Thanks for your insightful photographs, Sally

  3. Well composed shots. Clever work showing people appearing to be walking by without a glance. A strong statement on the polarization of society.

  4. Begging should not be necessary any place. But since it happens, more every year, it should be documented. I find it difficult myself, how to preserve the dignity of people.
