After having my interest in street photography reignited from the Kelby Photo Walk, I decided to go through some of my old B&W negatives. I was looking for a very specific image of a man named Russ Rafael. Russ had one of the very last newspaper stands in Seattle and was a very interesting person. I don’t remember much about him since this was taken in 1987, but I do remember that he lived a simple life supported by his newspaper stand. The biggest thing that stands to me still is how happy he was. He didn’t have much, but didn’t seem to need much either.
